Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle P. Rossi, who is handling the case, stated that FBI Special Agents identified the defendant actively trading child pornography from a trailer residence in Seneca Falls. Subsequently, agents, with assistance from the Seneca Falls Police Department and Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, searched two residences that Urquhart occupied during the period in question. Digital items belonging to Urquhart were seized. A forensic analysis determined that the defendant possessed multiple images and videos of child pornography, including images that depicted the sexual abuse of prepubescent minors.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert, the Seneca Falls Police Department, under the direction of Chief Stuart W. Peenstra, and the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, under the direction of Sheriff W. Timothy Luce.

Sentencing is scheduled for September 18, 2019, before Judge Wolford.
