Buffalo, NY (WBEN) A Buffalo photographer is charged with child pornography possession. Federal prosecutors say he also had a sexual relationship with a teenage girl.

Prosecutors say Delshawn K. Trueheart, 43, had sexual relations with a teen girl when she was between the ages of 15 and 17 at both his home and his photography studio. The victim also told Buffalo Police that Trueheart took nude images of her and recorded them engaged in sexual intercourse.

On March 20, 2019, law enforcement officers searched Trueheart’s residence and studio, and located a video of the victim, then 16 years-old, engaged in sexual intercourse.

Trueheart had an initial appearance Wednesday afternoon in federal court.

He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
