LOCKPORT – A City of Lockport man pleaded guilty Friday in Niagara County Court to sharing pornographic videos of children online with people who turned out to be FBI agents.

Floyd R. Huntington, 31, of Oakhurst Street, could be sentenced to as long as seven years in prison when he returns before County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III June 6 to be sentenced for promoting a sexual performance by a child as a sexually motivated felony.

Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth R. Donatello said the Buffalo Cyber Crimes Task Force was monitoring Huntington’s computer from 2010 through February 2011 and downloaded child porn from it. In March 2011, they obtained a search warrant, seized his computer and peripherals and came up with more porn, although Huntington wasn’t actually charged until last November.

Donatello said that in 2011, Huntington told the agents that he’d been downloading and trading child porn for about five years.
