MAN, 40, PLEADS GUILTY TO CHILD PORN DOWNLOAD

A Newfane man pleaded guilty to a felony Wednesday in Niagara County Court for sharing child pornography he had downloaded onto his personal computer.

Michal J. Pallotta, 40, of Keller Avenue, is to be sentenced by Judge Sara Sheldon Sperrazza on Sept. 23 for promoting a sexual performance by a child.

Pallotta was arrested in March on 50 counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child -- one for each picture found on his computer after investigators seized it Jan. 8. Pallotta was undone by an anonymous tip phoned in to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, who reported it to State Police.
