New York Man gets 20-Years for Child Porn

BUFFALO, N.Y. – U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Richard C. Miller, 53, of Forestville, NY, who was previously convicted of receipt and possession of child pornography, was sentenced to serve 20 years in prison and lifetime supervised release by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan P. Cantil, who handled the case, stated that between 2006 and 2009, Miller produced child pornography by filming himself engaged in a sexual act with a minor. Between January 2016 and March 2017, Miller and co-defendant Joseph Harvey exchanged images of child pornography and engaged in illicit discussions regarding child pornography and pedophilia. In addition, a search of the residence shared by the defendants revealed multiple electronic devices that contained child pornography. 

Joseph Harvey was previously convicted and sentenced to serve 96 months in prison.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Kevin Kelly.
