ROCHESTER, N.Y. – U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Jeffrey Martin, 37, of Elmira, NY, who was convicted of receipt of child pornography, following a prior conviction, was sentenced to serve 240 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Charles J. Siragusa.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Melissa M. Marangola, who handled the case, stated that between May 31 and July 19, 2019, Minor Victim 1 slept over at the defendant’s residence on several occasions with the permission of Minor Victim 1’s mother. On at least one of those occasions, Martin took several sexually explicit pictures of Minor Victim 1 with his cellular telephone, knowing that such photographs would be automatically uploaded to his Google online storage account.   

The defendant was previously convicted of felony statutory rape in Mansfield, Pennsylvania, on July 19, 2004. 

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Child Exploitation Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Stephen Belongia.
