PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A resident of Jamestown, New York, has been sentenced in federal court to four years and nine months imprisonment, 25 months supervised release and a $5,000 special assessment under the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act (18 U.S.C. § 3014(a)) on his conviction of travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

United States District Judge Cathy Bissoon imposed the sentence yesterday on Andrew Michael Dubois, age 32, of Jamestown, NY.

According to information presented to the court, on December 7, 2017, Dubois knowingly traveled in interstate commerce from New York to Pennsylvania for the purpose of engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.

Assistant United States Attorney Jessica Lieber Smolar prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

United States Attorney Brady commended the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the North Strabane Police Department for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Dubois.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals, who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
