64-year-old repeat offender James O’Brien was sentenced May 8 after pleading guilty in October  to uploading child porn on three occasions in June and July of 2017.  Officials say they found over 650 images of young children and eight video files on electronic devices in May of 2018. 

Federal investigators say O’Brien had previously been convicted in 2008 in Chenango County of possessing a sexual performance of a child less than 16 years old.  He was sentenced to six months in jail in that case.
