CORNING, N.Y. (WIVB) - A man in Steuben County was sentenced Wednesday on disturbing charges that he took sexually explicit pictures of toddlers.
Bryan Griswold of Corning will spend seven years in jail after being convicted of possession of child pornography. Prosecutors say the 22-year-old was caught sharing images online of children being exploited and abused. When they raided his home in August of 2009, they found over 600 images of child pornography.
What's more, investigators say some of the images he had were of two female relatives, each approximately 2-years-old. Griswold admitted taking those pictures and taking pictures of victims at the YMCA in Corning. Griswold worked there as a child care provider and snapped sexually explicit images of victims between 2- and 4-years-old.
When he is released from prison, he will have 25 years of supervised release.
Police say they had the wrong man, and that Jerome Thagard, who spent four years in prison, didn't murder Steven Northrup in 2009. But the victim's family says otherwise.
