UTICA, N.Y. – A Utica man currently serving a sentence for sexually abusing two young girls, was sentenced to an additional five years in federal court Wednesday.

In 2017, James Caruso, 57, pleaded guilty to first-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. He was sentenced to seven years in prison for sexually abused two girls, ages 8 and 10, on separate occasions at a home in Rome.

Caruso received the additional sentence after he also pleaded guilty to possession of child porn.

Federal investigators say they found 131 videos and 32 images of child porn on Caruso’s computer. Caruso then admitted to purchasing and receiving the photos and videos from a foreign website.

The judge also sentenced Caruso to 10 years supervised release, and required that he register as a sex offend after he’s released.
