Repeat offender sentenced to 27 years in child porn case

A Niagara Falls man with a prior conviction for possessing images of a child engaged in sexual activity was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court to 27 years in prison, following his most recent conviction on distributing child pornography.

Daniel Krull, 44, using the Facebook profile "Danny Blaze," distributed 11 images of child pornography to other individuals  using a private group  on the social media platform, according to federal authorities. Facebook eventually shut down the private group used by Krull and submitted a CyberTipline report to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children on February 28, 2016.

The Niagara County Probation Department seized Krull's cellular telephone and a forensic examination  revealed about 2,026 still images and 20 videos of child pornography depicting minors, including some under the age of 12, engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

During the investigation, Krull admitted that he previously sexually molested three underage girls. He also admitted that he had on several occasions followed numerous under age girls at a local retail store.

In March 2007, Krull was convicted in state court of possessing a sexual performance by a child less than 16 years of age.
