BUFFALO – A Cattaraugus County man will spend more than 18 years behind bars after he plead guilty to receipt of child pornography late last year.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo reports that Kevin Fox, 63, of Limestone was sentenced Friday to serve 220 months in prison and a lifetime supervised release.








Fox plead guilty last October following an investigation into use of child pornography.

Federal investigators said that starting in May 2016, the defendant persuaded an adult female, identified as T.M., to find a minor male and engage in sexual activity with him for the purpose of producing a visual depiction.









T.M. reportedly met a 16-year-old male (Victim 1) through Craigslist and began communicating with Victim 1 via text messaging that was sexual in nature. On June 1, 2016, T.M. picked up Victim 1 and drove to her residence, where she reportedly engaged in sexual activity with Victim 1. T.M. used her cellular telephone to take approximately five photographs. T.M. then drove Victim 1 home and texted the images to a telephone number controlled by Fox.

According to the U.S Attorney’s Office, Fox also persuaded T.M. to engage in sexual activity with a 17-year-old minor male (Victim 2) who was known to T.M. Between May 26, 2016, and June 21, 2016, T.M. engaged in sexual activity with Victim 2, at Fox’s request. T.M. also took photographs once again and sent the images to the defendant.















The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation by Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Gary Loeffert, Special Agent-in-Charge along with the Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office, under the direction of Timothy Whitcomb.
