Steuben County man faces child pornography charges

STEUBEN, N.Y. (WHEC) — A Steuben County man was arrested Friday and charged with the production of child pornography.

Authorities say a phone that once belonged to 59-year-old John Buckley contained images of suspected child pornography.

That phone was handed over to police in Illinois, where Buckley once lived.

A search of that phone by the FBI Buffalo Field Office recovered images that constitute child pornography, including images of a minor.

If found guilty, Buckley faces a maximum of 40 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
