City Man Sentenced For Distributing Child Porn

BUFFALO-A city man was sentenced to 120 months in prison and 10 years supervised release for distribution of child pornography according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. 

Christopher Whitford, 46, used a peer-to-peer file sharing program. He shared files with an undercover law enforcement officer.  A federal search warrant was executed last year at the defendant’s residence at 42 W. 13th St. during which several items of electronic media were seized.

Forensic analysis revealed images and videos constituting child pornography were stored on those items. The images and videos that the defendant previously shared with the undercover officer were among them. Whitford had approximately 2405 images and 1188 videos constituting child pornography.
