Clifton Park man convicted of child pornography offenses

Posted:
ALBANY, N.Y.—A jury trial that began Monday ended in the conviction of a Clifton Park man on Wednesday.

Stephen Konn, 63, was charged with the felony offenses of distribution of child pornography, receipt of child pornography, and possession of child pornography.

Evidence provided during trial showed that Konn, a retired employee from the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, used a peer-to-peer file trading program to distribute child pornography to an undercover FBI agent.

A search of Konn’s residence uncovered a computer containing over 4,000 images and 800 videos of child pornography and that he had been trading child pornography over the internet for years.

Konn faces a minimum sentencing of five years and a maximum sentence of 20 years imprisonment.

 He will be sentenced in Albany on September 4.
