Niagara Falls man with prior child sexual abuse conviction going back to prison on new child pornography charge

U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Albert Smith, 40, of Niagara Falls, NY, who was convicted of possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor and having a prior conviction under the laws of any state relating to sexual abuse involving a minor, was sentenced to serve 188 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Maeve E. Huggins, who handled the case, stated that in 2003, Smith was convicted in North Tonawanda City Court of Sexual Abuse 2nd: Sexual Contact with Person Less Than 14 Years Old. On October 22, 2021, a search warrant was executed at Smith’s residence, during which investigators seized two cell phones. Investigators also located another electronic device containing child pornography, which Smith had attempted to discard. In total, Smith possessed 314 images and 25 videos of child pornography on the three devices. The images included depictions of prepubescent minors less than 12 years old, and the sexual abuse of an infant or toddler.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Niagara Falls Police Department, under the direction of Superintendent Nicholas Ligammari, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Miraglia.
