Dewitt Man Sentenced to 30 Years in Prison for Attempted Coercion and Enticement of a Child and Possession of Child Pornography

 SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – Derek Indivero, age 28, of Dewitt, New York, was sentenced today to serve 30 years in prison for attempted coercion and enticement of a child and possession of child pornography, announced Acting United States Attorney Antoinette T. Bacon, Special Agent-in-Charge Thomas Relford of the Albany Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and New York State Police Superintendent Keith Corlett. 

As part of his earlier guilty plea, Indivero admitted that in February of 2018 he began communicating with a middle school student using the on-line messaging application Snapchat.  Indivero offered the student $50 in exchange for sexual contact, and then met with the minor, engaged in the sexual contact, and paid the child $49.

Later that same month, law enforcement officials took over the middle school student’s Snapchat identity and, posing as the child, continued messaging Indivero. During the course of a Snapchat conversation, Indivero offered to pay the child $50 in exchange for oral sexual conduct, and then drove to a location to meet with the child for that purpose.  Instead of finding the child, Indivero encountered law enforcement officials, and was arrested.

As part of his guilty plea, Indivero also admitted that at the time of his arrest he possessed 37 child pornography videos he obtained from the Internet using his cellular telephone.  

Chief United States District Judge Glenn T. Suddaby also imposed a 30-year term of supervised release, which will start after Indivero is released from prison, and ordered Indivero to pay $6,000 in restitution and a $200 special assessment. As a result of his conviction, Indivero will be required to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.

Indivero’s case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the New York State Police in coordination with the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office and the Onondaga County District Attorney’s Office.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Geoffrey J. L. Brown as part of Project Safe Childhood.  Launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice, Project Safe Childhood is led by United States Attorney’s offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), and is designed to marshal federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
