Le Roy man sentenced on promoting sexual performance of a child charges

posted by Howard B. Owens in crime, Le Roy.

A 24-year-old Le Roy man was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 10 years probation Thursday for downloading and possessing pornography involving children under 17 years old.

Thomas J. Smith, of Main Road, Le Roy, was arrested in December following an eight-month investigation by State Police.

Earlier this year, Smith entered a guilty plea to promoting sexual performance by a child for downloading pornography involving a child under age 17, and a second count of promoting sexual performance by a child for possessing pornography involving a child under age 16.

Both counts are Class E felonies.

Smith will return to Genesee County Court on May 31 for a sexual offender status hearing, which will determine his standing in the New York sexual offender registry.
