Greene man sentenced in child porn case

GREENE – A village man who pleaded guilty earlier this year to federal child pornography charges was sentenced to 12-and-a-half years in prison Thursday, Greene Police Chief Steven Dutcher confirmed.

Charles A. Robbins, 50, of 27 North Chenango St. in the Village of Greene, will be subject to lifetime post-release supervision upon completing his sentence.



Robbins was convicted in April of possessing and disseminating child pornography in Binghamton Federal Court, the same day as the mass shooting at the American Civic Association building nearby on Front Street.

“We’re satisfied with the outcome,” said Dutcher, adding that he thought the penalty was severe enough, considering Robbins had no criminal record prior to the offense. He was facing 15 to 16 years.

“We’re happy the case went federal,” Dutcher said. “There’s a much stiffer penalty for these crimes at the federal level compared to the state and local level.”
