Written by on April 17, 2019

U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Robert Roy Richmond, 55, of Batavia, NY, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford to access with intent to view child pornography. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron J. Mango, who is handling the case, stated that on January 20, 2017, the defendant was observed by staff at a public library in Batavia, NY, utilizing a library computer to access the internet and view a child pornographic image. After Richmond left the library, the computer he used was seized by law enforcement. A forensic examination revealed that there were seven images on the computer which met the definition of child pornography.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert, and the Batavia Police Department, under the direction of Chief Shawn Heubusch.

Sentencing is scheduled for August 27, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. before Judge Wolford.
