Albion man pleads guilty to possession of child pornography

An Albion man pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court to possession of child pornography, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Prosecutors said 33-year-old Andrew Campbell faces a maximum 20 years in prison when he is sentenced Jan. 29 before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth R. Moellering, the Orleans County Sheriff's Office was contacted in July 2018 after an unidentified witness discovered a disturbing video on Campbell's desktop computer. The witness and Campbell lived together for a period, and Campbell had left the computer at the residence when he was made to vacate the premises in June 2018, the prosecutor said.

The witness also turned over to authorities a laptop and hard drive belonging to Campbell.

A forensic analysis of the desktop, laptop and hard drive revealed more than 65 image files and more than 20 videos containing child pornography, according to prosecutors, who said some of the images depicted the sexual abuse of an infant or toddler, including violence.
