Cheektowaga man avoids prison in child porn case

LOCKPORT – A Cheektowaga man was placed on 10 years’ probation Thursday for having child pornography on his home computer when he was living in Niagara County in early 2013.

Joseph C. Olick, 54, of Woodell Street, a former Cambria resident, had pleaded guilty to promoting a sexual performance by a child. Agents of the Buffalo Cyber Crimes Strike Force allegedly discovered downloads of three videos from his computer.

He did well enough on eight months of interim probation to persuade County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III to give him the full probation term. Murphy could have imprisoned Olick for as long as seven years.
