An Irondequoit man who recorded his sexual abuse of children was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison Wednesday.
Logan Nedo, 34, who pleaded guilty to producing child pornography, admitted to the abuse of the children in his care.
Nedo also pleaded guilty Wednesday to two state charges — first-degree sexual abuse and first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child. He was sentenced to 20 years in state prison and 20 years of post-release supervision by County Court Judge Karen Bailey Turner.
The state sentence will be served at the same time as the federal sentence.
During the investigation, police and federal authorities discovered that Nedo had produced and saved videos of the abuse, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle Rossi. Nedo also had another 2,500 images of unrelated child pornography.
On May 19, 2019, Nedo went to the Brighton Police Department and turned himself in. He admitted to sexually abusing a 4-year-old child. He said it happened multiple times. He was then turned over to the Irondequoit Police Department after it was revealed the abuse took place at his home in Irondequoit.
Nedo admitted he recorded the abuse with his cellphone. The second victim was a 3-year-old child, authorities said.
He told the victims it was their “secret,” according to the criminal complaint.
Nedo worked in the Fairport Central School District technology department and was suspended by Fairport schools. He worked with staff members and maintained district websites. He was banned from school campuses after his arrest. School officials said he did not have contact with children in his job.
Monroe County Assistant District Attorney Meredith Vacca said she hoped the sentencing would provide some justice to the two victims and their families.
“Although I am relieved that justice was served in this case, I must also recognize the irreparable harm this trauma has caused these children and their loved ones,” Vacca said in a release. “My hope is that his conviction and sentence provides an opportunity for them to heal and move forward with their lives.”
