NUNDA – A Livingston County man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for child pornography charges.
According to News10NBC, Bryan Matacale, 43, of Nunda was convicted of production of child pornography and possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child.
A Belgian citizen told police that an individual he knew as “Bob” paid him money in exchange for images and videos of child pornography on several occasions. The investigation revealed that “Bob” was Matacale.
An August 28, 2017 investigation of Matacale’s home and devices revealed that Matacale was contacting another individual with two daughters, ages four and six, for naked photos of the children, stating that they would be used for research.
Law enforcement also recovered online conversations between the 43-year-old and a 16-year-old from Vermont. Officials say the girl had sent naked pictures of herself to Matacle.
Matacale was sentenced to 25 years in prison for the charges.
