A Cazenovia man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for sexually exploiting a child.

The U.S Attorney's Office says as part of his guilty plea, 75-year old Naven Conley admitted that on three separate occasions, he engaged in sexually explicit conduct with a minor who was under the age of 7.

Conley further admitted that from 2016 through 2018 he used a cellular telephone to record sex acts that he engaged in with the child.

He also admitted he possessed child pornography that he received over the internet and that he showed those images and videos to the victim in his efforts to convince the child to engage in sex acts with him.

Conley was imposed a lifetime term of supervised release and will be required to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.
