Local man, former Air Force Reservist, pleads guilty to child porn distribution

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — An Orchard Park man pleaded guilty Monday to distributing child pornography to an undercover agent in a sting, officials said.

Prosecutors confirmed Steven Fine, 30, admitted to a count of distribution of child pornography, opening himself up to between five and 20 years behind bars, along with a fine of up to $250,000.

Officials say the former United States Air Force Reservist distributed videos that had child porn inside to law enforcement posing as a person seeking out the explicit videos. With that evidence, police searched his computers in September of 2014, locating various images and videos of child porn, including one featuring himself with a minor under the age of 16-years-old.

Fine returns to court for sentencing on July 15.
