Western District of New York | Registered sex offender going to prison for more than 19 years for receiving child pornography | #childpredator | #kidsaftey | #childsaftey


BUFFALO, N.Y. – U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Juan Quinones-Rivera, 41, who was convicted of receipt of child pornography, was sentenced to serve 235 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Maeve E. Huggins and Caitlin M. Higgins, who handled the case, stated that in late 2020, Quinones-Rivera, a registered sex offender residing in the Western District of New York, began communicating with a 17-year-old female (Victim) on Snapchat. Quinones-Rivera told the Victim he was 19 years old. In late 2020 or early 2021, conversations between Quinones-Rivera and the Victim became sexual, with the two exchanging sexually explicit pictures and videos. Quinones-Rivera directed the Victim on what he wanted her to do in the videos and images. In all, the Victim sent Quinones-Rivera approximately 50 images and videos via Snapchat. In exchange, Quinones-Rivera sent money to the Victim via CashApp, in increments of approximately $20 and $50, for a total of approximately $700. In April 2021, a New York State Parole Officer located a cellular phone on Quinones-Rivera and found that he had been using Snapchat to communicate with the Victim. The phone also contained evidence of CashApp transactions to an account belonging to the Victim.           

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Miraglia, the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, under the direction of Daniel F. Martuscello III, the Town of Tonawanda Police Department, under the direction of Chief James Stauffiger; and the Greene County, Virginia Sheriff’s Office, under the direction of Sheriff Steven Smith.
