Town of Tonawanda man pleads guilty in child pornography case

A Town of Tonawanda man faces a maximum 20 years in prison after pleading guilty Friday to a charge of possession of child pornography, according to the U.S Attorney's Office.

Randy Rance, 56, also faces a $250,000 fine if convicted on the charge, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

Rance, in December 2016, distributed child pornography to an undercover investigator, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

Rance's computer was seized by Town of Tonawanda Police last January, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

Police said a forensic examination revealed that Rance was in possession of hundreds of thousands of images of child pornography, some of which depicted prepubescent children under 12 years old, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

The plea is the result of an investigation by Town of Tonawanda Police and the FBI. Rance is scheduled to be sentenced April 17 in U.S. District Court.
