Timothy Buckley, a 55-year-old resident of Groton, New York, has been sentenced to 84 months in federal prison after being found guilty of receiving and distributing child pornography.
In his earlier guilty plea, Buckley confessed to obtaining child pornography from another user on a social networking app in January 2021. He also admitted to sharing images of child pornography with an undercover law enforcement officer using the same platform in August 2021.
United States District Judge David N. Hurd further ordered Buckley to undergo 15 years of supervised release following his prison term. Upon his release, Buckley will also be mandated to register as a sex offender.
