ROCHESTER, NY—U.S. Attorney William, J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that David Rubin, 40, of Rochester, N.Y., pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography before United States District Judge David G. Larimer. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, a fine of $250,000 or both.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Tiffany H. Lee, who is handling the case, stated that in July 2011, FBI special agents executed a search warrant at the defendant’s residence and recovered images of child pornography on a computer owned by Rubin. Some of the images included depictions of prepubescent children.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.

The plea is the culmination of an investigation on the part of the special agents from the Federal Bureau of Inevstigation, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Christopher M. Piehota.
Sentencing is scheduled for June 25, 2012 at 10 a.m. before Judge Larimer.
