BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A 37-year-old Alden man has pleaded guilty to one possession of child pornography charge after downloading violent images of child porn from the dark web.
The United States Attorney’s office says Brandon Kidder downloaded and stored images and videos of child pornography on his cellphone. He downloaded the content from a “dark website” featuring “Hurtcore” violent child pornography.
A search warrant was executed at Kidder’s home by the FBI. Investigators seized multiple devices, including media storage devices. 600 images and videos of child pornography were found on these devices including images that portrayed prepubescent minors, or minors under the age of 12 and depictions of violence.
Brandon Kidder will be back in court for sentencing on December 17.
