Buffalo man sent to prison for possessing child porn images

A man who admitted possessing more than 1,000 child pornography images and videos was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Richard J. Arcara to 97 months in prison.

Jason Zaifert, 33, of Buffalo had previously pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie P. Grisanti said some of the images seized after Zaifert’s arrest in November 2013 depicted violence and children under the age of 12.

His conviction is the result of an investigation by Immigration and Customs Enforcemen-Homeland Security Investigations.
