Steuben man faces federal child porn charges after ex-girlfriend turns in his smartphone

A Steuben County man was arrested on federal charges after investigators in two states found images of child pornography on his smartphone.

The smartphone was provided by a former girlfriend, according to prosecutors.


John Buckley, 59, of Wayland was charged with production and possession of child pornography.

A Florida woman, through a relative, turned in an old smartphone over to an Illinois police department after discovering it contained images of suspected child pornography.

Buckley is the owner of the phone, according to prosecutors.

If convicted, the Wayland man could face 40 years in prison.
