Forestville man pleads guilty to child porn possession

A Chautauqua County faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty in U.S. District Court to possession of child pornography, the U.S. Attorney's Office said Friday.

Prosecutors said 55-year-old Joseph Harvey of Forestville was found in possession of 37 videos and 51 images of child pornography. Some of the images included prepubescent children and depictions of violence, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

Between Jan. 16 and May 14, 2016, Harvey also exchanged text messages with another man in which they discussed child pornography, prosecutors said. During their text exchanges, Harvey distributed and received images of child pornography, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
