Local man sentenced for receiving child porn

A local man has been sentenced for receiving child pornography.

Anthony Graff, 49, of Cincinnati, was sentenced in U.S. District Court to 210 months in prison. He was also sentenced to serve the rest of his life under court supervision after his prison time. The maximum sentence he could have received was 240 months.  Federal law will also require him to register as a sex offender. 

In 2006, Italian law enforcement authorities arrested an individual for producing and selling child pornographic videos.  One of the customers of this website was identified as Graff.  Email communications between the Italian target and Graff confirmed that Graff had been purchasing child pornography videos from early 2005 up through the fall of 2006.  Emails also revealed Graff had written a script and ordered a custom child pornography video from the Italian website, identifying the particular child he wanted to perform in the video.  A search of Graff's residence resulted in the seizure of numerous computer items, many of which contained child pornography.  Some of the videos and/or images depicted children less than 12 years of age, and also included sadistic, masochistic or other violent acts. 

Graff was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals following his sentencing hearing to immediately begin serving his sentence.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.
