DRYDEN, N.Y.—The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Syracuse, N.Y. announced charges Wednesday against a Dryden man, alleging possession of child pornography.

Randolph Bullock, 64, was arrested April 28, apparently the result of an FBI investigation.

According to the announcement, the criminal complaint alleges that Bullock “possessed images of child pornography on his desktop computer at his former place of employment.” The Ithaca Voice has requested a full copy of the criminal complaint to reveal more details, but has yet to receive it. 

Bullock now faces up to 10 years in prison, up to $250,000 in fines, supervised release of between five years and life, and sex offender registration if convicted. He appeared before Judge Thérèse Wiley Dancks and was kept in custody afterwards, awaiting a hearing on May 3. 

According to an announcement, the FBI’s Mid-State Child Exploitation Task Force is working the case, with assistance from the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Department and the Village of Dryden Police Department. It’s part of a larger initiative, Project Safe Childhood.

Members of the public who have information regarding Bullock are asked to call the Federal Bureau of Investigation at (607) 274-5050.
