A couple in Cortland was charged Wednesday with conspiring to sexually exploit a child, according to the Department of Justice.
A federal criminal complaint charges that Lawrence and Brittany Berry allegedly conspired together to sexually exploit a child who was born in 2015 for the purpose of producing visual depictions of that abuse.
Lawrence, 25, and Brittany, 24, were charged last September on state charges regarding this complaint.
If convicted of the charge, the couple will face:
– A mandatory minimum prison sentence of 15 years
– A maximum sentence of 30 years
– A fine of up to $250,000
– a term of post-imprisonment supervised release of at least 5 years and up to life
