From The US Attorneys Office: Child Porn Case In Savona

U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that John Fadden, 49, of Savona, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Charles J. Siragusa to possession of child pornography by an individual who has a prior conviction involving the sexual abuse of a child. The charge carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison and a maximum of 20 years in prison.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan K. McGuire, who is handling the case, stated that in March 2021, The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received two cybertip reports from Yahoo! Inc. that in February and March, 2021, Fadden's email  uploaded approximately 185 image files of suspected child pornography. In October 2021, investigators executed a search warrant at Fadden’s residence and seized nine electronic devices and storage media. A forensic analysis recovered approximately 278 images on those devices.  Fadden is a Level 3 registered sex offender. He was convicted in 1991, 1992, and 2001 of Sexual Abuse 1st: Sexual Contact with Individual Less Than 11 Years Old. In 2013, Fadden was convicted of Sex Offender Fail to Report Change of Address/Status In 10 Days.


The plea is a result of an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Scarpino, and the New York State Police, under the direction of Major Eugene Staniszewski.  Sentencing is scheduled for January 19, 2023, at 9:30 a.m. before Judge Siragusa.  


Bath Police:  Court Suspects Need A Ride Home

Bath Police also say, that the suspects that are being released from centralized arraignment court at the jail, be provided with transportation back to the town they were arrested in.  Bath Police say many crimes are now committed in Bath because court suspects are walking around Bath without transportation back to the towns they’re from, and the police say, many suspects are still high and intoxicated at time of release.
