Press Release, U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr.
BUFFALO – U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Andrew Campbell, 33, formerly of Albion, now living in North Carolina, who was convicted of possession of child pornography, was sentenced to serve 78 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth R. Moellering, who handled the case, stated in July 2018, an individual contacted the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office after discovering a disturbing video on a desktop computer that belonged to the defendant. The witness and Campbell lived together on and off and Campbell left the computer at the residence when he was made to vacate the residence by the witness in June 2018. In addition to the desktop computer, Witness 1 also turned over a laptop computer and hard drive.
A forensic analysis of the desktop, laptop, and hard drive revealed more than 65 image files and more than 20 videos containing child pornography. Some of the images depicted the sexual abuse or exploitation of an infant or toddler, and other depictions of violence.
The sentencing is a result of an investigation by the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office, under the direction of former Sheriff Randy Bower, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Buffalo Office, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert.
