Blasdell man accused of possessing child pornography

A Blasdell man was charged Wednesday with receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Prosecutors said Robert Michalewski, 54, faces a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of 40 years in prison if he is convicted on the charges.

After receiving a tip of suspected child pornography from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, U.S. Homeland Security Investigations traced the suspected child pornography to Michalewski, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan A. Tokash. On May 24, investigators executed a search warrant at Michalewski's residence and seized a desktop computer, cellphone, laptop computers, external hard drives, DVDs, thumb drives, internal hard drives, VHS tapes and literature.

Michalewski was convicted in February 2018 of possession of a sexual performance by a child in Erie County Court and sentenced to a conditional discharge, prosecutors said.
