Batavia man accused of accessing child porn at public library

BATAVIA, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - A Batavia man is facing federal child pornography charges after allegedly accessing material at a public library.

Court documents state Robert Richmond was arrested in January on suspicion of possessing and knowingly accessing with intent to view child pornography on a computer at the Richmond Memorial Library. 

In July, Batavia Police arrested Richmond after a library employee saw Richmond looking at child pornography on the computer. The employee identified Richmond from his library card and a photo array.

Investigators seized the computer and analyzed it. A Forensic Examiner found 83 images of suspected child pornography. 

During an interview with Batavia Police in May, Richmond admitted that he had viewed child pornography at the library, and had been doing so since 2009. Richmond told police he was "getting counseling for the issue."
