Jamestown Man To Spend Over A Decade In Prison On Child Porn Conviction




BUFFALO – A City of Jamestown man will spend more than a decade behind bars after he was convicted of receipt and possession of child pornography.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo says 35-year-old Matthew Bailer was sentenced to serve twelve- and one-half years in prison and 10 years supervised release after that.






Prosecutors say in July 2018 the Jamestown Police Department received a complaint from a parent that her children may have been sexually abused by Bailer. The parent stated that she was told by Bailer’s sister that a series of concerning pictures, sexual in nature, texted by the man.

Bailer was subsequently arrested on a warrant out of Missouri related to a burglary case.





During a search of his cell phone, investigators recovered several hundred images of images of child pornography involving sexually explicit conduct by prepubescent and pubescent children.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Stephen Belongia, and the Jamestown Police Department, under the direction of Acting Chief Timothy Jackson.
