A two year old child pornography case has ended with the sentencing of a Corfu man.
37-year-old David Woods of Corfu has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for distributing thousands of pornographic video’s and still images.
Prosecutors said the images portrayed children – including infants and toddlers – being subjected to bondage and rape by adults.
Lawmen first raided Woods Corfu home two years ago.
The case was handed in federal court and prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
It is rare that a police officer fires his or her service weapon in the line of duty, even if was accidental.
It happened in Batavia two weeks ago.
An unidentified rookie officer, male or female - BPD brass will not say - answered a call at Grandview Terrace Apartments. The officer was returning their Glock 40-caliber to its holster, when it fired.
No one was hurt.
There is an internal investigation. The officer is likely to receive some remedial training.
At least 30 people are facing indictments following a long investigation into drug trafficking in Western New York. The investigation known as Operation Crazy Train lasted for more than a year. Officials say more than a million-dollars worth of heroin and cocaine were seized in raids, along with thousands of dollars in cash. The vast majority of those indicted in the case are from Rochester and Buffalo.
Local lawmen are honored by the Batavia Kiwanis Club.
The Kiwanis Criminal Justice awards were handed out last night.
Among the recipients were Chief Deputy Jerome Brewster with the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office and Police Officer Kevin DeFelice with the Batavia Police Department.
Also honored was victim’s advocate Theresa Asmus-Roth.
GCASA presented its exceptional service award to Sheriff’s Deputy Joseph Corona.
