Photographer faces 15 years in prison for producing child pornography
A photographer based in Buffalo, New York, pleaded guilty to producing child pornography. The charge carries a minimum prison sentence of 15 years and a $250,000 fine.
Delshawn Trueheart, 43, will be sentenced in June. Investigators obtained a federal search warrant and searched his home in March 2019. They found an SD memory card that contained video of an underage victim who was naked in Trueheart’s Buffalo photography studio.
The minor told the Buffalo Police Department that Trueheart had sexual relations with her when she was between the ages of 15 and 17 years old. The teenager also said he took nude images of her and filmed them having sex at his home and photography studio.
