Faces Minimum 35 Years in Prison

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – John G. Stroming, age 60, of Stuyvesant, New York, was found guilty today of sexual exploitation of a child following a 2-day jury trial.

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith; James N. Hendricks, Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI); and New York State Police Acting Superintendent Keith M. Corlett.

The evidence at trial showed that Stroming video-recorded himself sexually abusing a 19-month-old child and that he also possessed child pornography involving other children. At the time of the crimes, Stroming was required to register as a sex offender. He has sex offense convictions including for rape in the second degree (2011) and promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child (1999). 

Sentencing is set for September 9, 2019 before Senior United States District Judge Norman A. Mordue. Stroming faces at least 35 years in prison. A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on the particular statute the defendant is charged with violating, the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other factors.

This case was investigated by the New York State Police and the FBI, and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Katherine Kopita and Shira C. Hoffman.
