Saratoga Springs man gets 88 months for child porn
ALBANY, N.Y. >> A Saratoga Springs man was arrested for receiving more than 600 images depicting the sexual exploitation of children, including images of prepubescent children, toddlers, and images depicting sadistic or masochistic conduct from an encrypted web site that is not accessible via ordinary online search engines.
Kyle Caton, 31, was sentenced on Nov. 13 to 88 months in prison for receiving child pornography. He was enlisted in the United States Navy prior to his arrest, and was discharged because of his crimes.
The announcement was made by United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith and Kevin Kelly, Special Agent in Charge of the Buffalo Field Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
Senior United States District Judge Thomas J. McAvoy also imposed a 15-year term of supervised release, which will begin after Caton is released from prison, and ordered him to pay $12,000 in restitution to child pornography victims. Caton will be required to register as a sex offender as a result of his conviction.
This case was investigated by HSI and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shira Hoffman as part of Project Safe Childhood.
