BUFFALO – A City of Jamestown man has admitted to receiving naked pictures of young girls on social media.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo says 30-year-old Shane Guay plead guilty to receipt of child pornography on Wednesday.






Prosecutors say in November 2016 Guay solicited minors through Instagram to produce pictures of child porn.

According to officials he received an image of one victim, who was 12-years-old at the time, and two images of another victim on, who was 13-years-old at the time.





During the investigation, officers recovered 587 images and five videos of child porn on devices seized from Guay. Some of the images included preteens, as well as depictions of violence.

The receipt of child porn charge carries a minimum of five years in prison, a maximum of 20 years, and a $250,000 fine. Guay is due back in court for sentencing on April 1, 2021, at 2 p.m.
