Man gets 20 years for exploiting underage girls he met online

A Cheektowaga man accused of victimizing three underage girls was sentenced Wednesday to 20 years in federal prison.

Raymond Crum, 63, had previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo to possession and receipt of child pornography.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron J. Mango said Crum victimized a 12-year-old and two 15-year-olds he met online. He later engaged in sexually explicit communications with the girls that included sexually explicit images.

In court papers, prosecutors said an August 2015 search of Crum's residence resulted in the seizure of two computers and a tablet that included images and videos of the three underage victims.

The government said the computers also contained communications between the defendant and the three girls.
