A Buffalo man who admitted that he distributed a video containing child pornography from his cellphone in March 2018 was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court to 144 months in prison and 30 years of supervised release, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Prosecutors said 30-year-old Atif Ullah conceded that on March 6, 2018, he distributed from his cellphone a video that he knew constituted child pornography.
On Aug. 16, 2018, a federal search warrant was executed at Ullah's residence, where law enforcement officers seized two cellphones, each containing images of child pornography.
An examination of the phones revealed a total of 33 images of child pornography, eight of which were produced by Ullah between June 22 and Aug. 16, 2018, prosecutors said.
The image of a 7-year-old child who is related to Ullah was among those recovered from Ullah's phone, prosecutors added.
