BUFFALO -- Joseph Kurowski, 24, of Cheektowaga, who pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography, was sentenced to 30 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo.

Prosecutors say that in the Spring of 2015, Kurowski began communicating via text message with a 17-year-old female. The text messages were sexually explicit in nature. On April 10, 2015, the defendant asked her to send him a sexually explicit photograph which she then sent via text message. Kurowski was aware that she was a minor at the time he received this image.
