Hudson Valley Man Sexually Exploited Four Children
A Hudson Valley man is heading to prison after he confessed he used PS4 and social media to sexually exploit four young children.
On Friday, Cammron Robinson, 24, of New Paltz was sentenced to 30 years in prison for sexually exploiting four children.
Just before Christmas, Robinson pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual exploitation of a child. Robinson confessed he convinced four children to engage in sexually explicit conduct and produced videos and images capturing that conduct over the course of three years.
Robinson admitted that from 2015 through 2017, he used the PS4 gaming console, Skype, Zoom and cell phones to chat online with numerous boys. During his conversations with the children, Robinson persuaded, induced, enticed or coerced the boys, who were between the ages of 11 and 13, to masturbate and/or show him their genitalia, officials say.
The sexually explicit acts were then recorded or saved by Robinson so he could watch and view them again.
Robinson was also ordered to pay $9,000 in restitution. As a result of his conviction, Robinson will be required to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.
