BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — An Alden man has been sentenced to prison for possession of child pornography.

The U.S. Attorney's Office announced 37-year-old Brandon Kidder, who was convicted of possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor, was sentenced to 72 months in prison and 25 years supervised release.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Caitlin M.

On January 28, 2020, a search warrant was executed by the FBI at Kidder’s residence and seized devices and electronic storage media. A forensic review revealed more than 600 images and videos of child pornography.
