ROCHESTER, N.Y. – U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Roger Roberts, 50, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of receipt of child pornography, was sentenced to serve 204 months in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan K. McGuire, who handled the case, stated that between May 5 and October 19, 2020, Roberts engaged in Snapchat communications with a 13-year-old girl living in England. Roberts persuaded the girl to send sexually explicit photos and videos involving herself and a five-year-old girl.
The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the New York State Police, under the direction of Major Brian J. Ratajczak and Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Acting Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Scarpino.
