May 9, 2019

A Jamestown man has pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Buffalo to production and possession of child pornography.

The U.S. Attorney's office said James A. Chapman, 37, with the aliases Fatz Guy and Perverted Doe, was charged with engaging in sexual activity and taking nude pictures of two 16-year-old girls at his residence in November 2014.

Then, in April 2017, Chapman began communicating with a 17-year-old girl, receiving a sexually explicit image from her and sending her a picture of the first two girls. He also sent the third victim's photo to another individual.

Chapman faces a 15-40-year prison term and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced in September.
