ALBANY, NEW YORK – Daniel Porrazzo, a/k/a “lickndipinu,” age 51, of Stillwater, New York, pled guilty today to two counts of possession of child pornography.
The announcement was made by Acting United States Attorney Antoinette T. Bacon and Kevin Kelly, Special Agent in Charge of the Buffalo Field Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
As part of his guilty plea, Porrazzo admitted that on June 2, 2016, he possessed multiple images of child pornography on two laptop computers, and that the child pornography he possessed included depictions of children under age 12 being sexually abused.
Porrazzo faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years, a mandatory term of supervised release of 5 years and up to life, and a maximum $250,000 fine, when he is sentenced by Senior United States District Judge Thomas J.
