Upstate New York man pleads guilty to possession of child pornography

BUFFALO, N.Y. – An upstate New York man pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000. The investigation is being conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

Gregory Davis, 65, of North Tonawanda, N.Y., possessed 100 images and 60 videos of child pornography on his computer.

This investigation was part of Operation Predator, a nationwide ICE HSI initiative to protect children from sexual predators, including those who travel overseas for sex with minors, Internet child pornographers, criminal alien sex offenders, and child sex traffickers. ICE HSI encourages the public to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free hotline at 1-866-DHS-2-ICE. This hotline is staffed around the clock by investigators.

Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may be reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, an Operation Predator partner, at 1-800-843-5678 or http://www.cybertipline.com.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Gretchen L. Wylegala.
