ROCHESTER, N.Y. – U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Logan Nedo, 34, of Irondequoit, NY, who was convicted of producing child pornography, was sentenced to serve 30 years in prison by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle P. Rossi, who handled the case, stated that on May 19, 2019, Nedo turned himself in to the Brighton Police Department after allegedly sexually abusing two minor children. After discovering that the abuse primarily took place in the Town of Irondequoit, the Brighton Police Department turned Nedo over to the Irondequoit Police Department. Irondequoit Police continued the investigation, which ultimately led to the arrest of the defendant on state charges involving the physical sexual abuse of the children.
During their investigation, Irondequoit investigators discovered that Nedo had produced and saved videos and images of the abuse. As a result, several electronic items were seized from the defendant’s home and person turned over to the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force for processing. In addition to videos and photographs depicting the sexual abuse of the minor victims, approximately 2,500 images of unrelated child pornography were also discovered.
The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Irondequoit Police Department, under the direction of chief Alan Laird; the Brighton Police Department, under the direction of Chief David Catholdi; and the Federal Bureau of Investigations Child Exploitation Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Stephen Belongia. Additional assistance was provided by the Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory and the Bivona Child Advocacy Center. Nedo is also facing a parallel New York State prosecution by the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office.
