Child porn on cellphone leads to guilty plea for Lancaster man

A Lancaster man pleaded guilty to a child pornography charge Tuesday, according to the Erie County District Attorney's Office.

Jeremy Casey, 24, pleaded guilty before Erie County Court Judge Suzanne Maxwell Barnes to one count of possessing a sexual performance by a child.

The charges stemmed from a July 4, 2018 incident in which prosecutors said he had sexual contact with two underage victims; during an investigation, authorities found "several images of child pornography" on his phone. When Casey was arraigned on Jan. 25, he was charged with two felony counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child as well as one felony count of first-degree sexual abuse and one misdemeanor count of second-degree sexual abuse.

Casey, who was released on his own recognizance, faces a maximum of four years in prison when he is sentenced at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 10.

Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn commended the investigative work of Detective Robert Cornell and Detective Lieutenant James Robinson of the Lancaster Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Cathleen M. Roemer of the DA’s Special Victims Bureau.
