BUFFALO MAN PLEADS GUILTY TO PRODUCTION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

BUFFALO, N.Y. – U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Michael Bevill, 36, of Buffalo, NY, pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge H. Kenneth Schroeder, Jr. to production of child pornography, which carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 15 years in prison, a maximum of 30 years and a $250,000 fine. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Franz T. Wright, who is handling the case, stated that between June 2022, and August 2023, Bevill engaged in prohibited sexual conduct with a minor child under 12-years-old. Bevill produced photographs and video recordings of himself sexually abusing the minor child on multiple occasions. He admits that he gave the minor child sedatives before producing the child pornography. Bevill then distributed the visual depictions he produced to another individual using the Telegram messaging application.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the federal bureau of Investigation, under  under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Miraglia.

Sentencing will be scheduled at a later date.
