BUFFALO, N.Y.-- U.S. Attorney William Hochul, Jr. announced today that Andrew Ortman, 40, of Tonawanda, N.Y., who was convicted of distribution of child pornography, was sentenced to 10 years in prison and 20 years supervised release.

Attorneys stated that on October 22, 2011, law enforcement officers using an undercover computer downloaded eight video files from Ortman's computer that contained child pornography. Officers then obtained a search warrant for the defendant's home and seized his computer.

A forensic examination determined that Ortman possessed, received and distributed in excess of 600 images and videos of child pornography.
