ROCHESTER, N.Y. — U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Jeffrey Swartz, 41, of Rochester, NY, was arrested and charged by criminal complaint with possession of child pornography by an individual with a prior sex offense, which carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison, and a maximum of 20 years.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan K. McGuire, who is handling the case, stated that according to the complaint, in October 2009, Swartz was convicted in New York State Court of Rape 3rd: Victim Less than 17 Years Old. In September 2010, he was convicted in Federal Court of attempted production of child pornography and sentenced to serve 180 months in prison. In January 2020, Swartz was released from prison and began a 15-year term of supervised release. A condition of his release was that he must obtain authorization to use any internet accessible device and he must submit to monitoring of any such authorized device. In August 2023, the FBI was notified that Swartz was viewing child pornography on a monitored cellular telephone, which was confiscated by U.S. Probation. A review of the phone recovered images and videos of child pornography.  

Swartz made an initial appearance before U.S. District Judge David G. Larimer and was detained.

The complaint is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Miraglia, and the U.S. Probation Department, under the direction of Chief Probation Officer Timothy Englert.  

The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
