SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – Alan Longmore, age 68, of Fayetteville, New York, was sentenced today to serve 195 months (16 years and 3 months) in federal prison for receipt and possession of child pornography, announced Acting United States Attorney Antoinette T. Bacon and Kevin Kelly, Special Agent in Charge of the Buffalo Field Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
As part of his previous guilty plea, Longmore admitted he received images and videos of child pornography through a peer-to-peer file-sharing program. A forensic review of his laptop computer revealed it contained numerous child pornography video files. Longmore admitted to engaging in this conduct for several years. In addition to these video and image files, the defendant also admitted to secretly recording and subsequently possessing video files depicting two minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
United States District Judge David N. Hurd also imposed a lifetime term of supervised release, which will start after Longmore is released from prison, and ordered Longmore to pay a $200 special assessment. As a result of his conviction, Longmore will be required to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.
Longmore’s case was investigated by U.S. Homeland Security Investigations (HSI)-Syracuse Office, with assistance from the New York State Police Computer Crimes Unit, and the Town of Manlius Police Department.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Geoffrey J. L. Brown as part of Project Safe Childhood. Launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice, Project Safe Childhood is led by United States Attorney’s Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), and is designed to marshal federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
