A 26 year old Elmira woman is charged with producing and distributing child pornography.
Ashley Warren and 42 year old Bryan Matacale, of Nunda, were arrested after Belgian Federal Police gave U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement a tip back in March. Matacale is also charged with receipt of child pornography. Police were told by a Belgian citizen that Matacale paid them money, with help from Warren, in exchange for images and videos of child porn.
In June, Warren reported to law enforcement that she believed Matacale might have inappropriately touched two underage female relatives. A review of text messages between the two revealed that Warren, at Matacale’s request, used her cell phone to take and send photos containing images of child pornography to him.
If convicted, Matacale faces a minimum of 25 years in prison, while Warren faces at least 15 years behind bars.
