SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WKTV) - A case worker with Oneida County Child Protective Services and retired Utica Police officer is now facing federal charges of child pornography.

United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian announced the arrest today of a Frankfort, New York man on child exploitation charges.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, a federal criminal complaint filed in United States District Court charges Stanley Dorozynski, 53, of Frankfort with receiving and possessing child pornography.

Dorozynski is currently employed as a case worker with Oneida County Child Protective Services, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

Dorozynski made his initial appearance Tuesday in federal court and has been remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal pending a detention hearing scheduled for December 23, 2010.

The charges filed against Dorozynski are felonies, and upon conviction, he faces a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in federal prison, a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years, fines of up to $250,000, and mandatory supervised release of no less than five years and up to life following any term of incarceration.

In addition, conviction of the charged offenses will require Dorozynski to register as a sex offender.

The joint effort is a part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.
