Endicott man pleads guilty to sexually exploiting 2 children, child porn charges

ENDICOTT, N.Y. - An Endicott man is facing prison time after pleading guilty to charges related to child porn and sexually exploiting children.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says that Richard Squires, 58, plead guilty on Thursday to Exploitation of a Child, Receiving Child Pornography, and Possession of Child Pornography in Federal Court in Binghamton.

Squires was arrested in April by Endicott Police.

As part of his plea, Squires admitted that in 2013 he made images of his sexual exploitation of two young girls, and in 2014 he received and possessed images of child porn at his home in Endicott.

Law enforcement became aware of this when one of the victims disclosed her sexual abuse to a school official.

Squires was interviewed by Endicott Police, and confessed to making, possessing, and receiving child porn.

Endicott Police and FBI Agents obtained search warrants for his home, and gathered evidence.

Squires is scheduled to be sentenced in December and faces a minimum sentence of 15 years, and up to 30 years, imprisonment for each count of child exploitation.

He also faces 5-20 years for receiving child porn, and up to 20 years for possession of child porn.

He will also be ordered to register as a sex offender.
