Columbia County Man Arrested on Child Pornography Charges

ALBANY, NEW YORK – James Brady, age 68, of Philmont, New York, was arrested and charged earlier this month with distribution and receipt of child pornography.

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith and Vadim D. Thomas, Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Brady was arrested on March 1 and appeared in Albany before United States Magistrate Judge Christian F. Hummel, who ordered him detained pending trial.

If convicted, Brady faces at least 5 years and up to 20 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, and a term of post-imprisonment supervised release of at least 5 years and up to life, as well as mandatory registration as a sex offender. A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on the particular statute the defendant is charged with violating, the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other factors.

The charges in the complaint are merely accusations. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Anyone who wants to provide law enforcement with information about the defendant should contact the FBI Albany Field Office at (518) 465-7551.

This case is being investigated by the FBI and New York State Police, and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Sahar L. Amandolare.

Launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice, Project Safe Childhood is led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS).
