Former Ithaca College student pleads guilty to having thousands of child porn images and videos

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - A 21-year-old Ithaca College student pleaded guilty on Friday to having thousands of images featuring child pornography, along with hundreds of videos.

Nicholas Feminella admitted that he uploaded child pornography to a DropBox account.

Investigators found the vast cache of images and videos when they searched his home in the town of Danby in November 2016.

He pleaded guilty to one count of transportation of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

Feminella faces at least five years and up to 20 years for transporting child pornography, and up to 20 years for possession.

The sentences could be served at the same time, or back-to-back, depending on the court’s discretion.

He will also be subject to post-release supervision and must register as a sex offender.

Feminella’s sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 11, 2017 in Albany.
