Man viewed child porn at Batavia library, prosecutors charge – Buffalo News

Originally published Oct. 4, 2017 in The Buffalo News

Typically, a man arrested for child pornography possession is forced to give up his private laptop or phone.

In Robert Roy Richmond’s case, the computer he is accused of using is located in the Batavia Public Library.

Richmond, a Batavia resident, was scheduled to appear Wednesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge H. Kenneth Schroeder Jr. in connection with charges that he watched child porn on one of the library’s public computers earlier this year.

FBI agents said a forensic examination of the computer revealed 83 suspected child porn images. They also claim Richmond admitted using the computer to view child porn.
