A suspended Homeland Security supervisor entered a guilty plea to possession of child pornography in a plea agreement Monday, admitting in U.S. District Court in Buffalo that he viewed and shared electronic images and videos, some of them showing children in “sadistic or masochistic conduct or other depictions of violence.”

Steven Metz, 41, pleaded guilty in front of U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny, who informed the Customs & Border Protection supervisor he could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.

Metz possessed more than 600 images and videos of child pornography on his computer and shared them with other individuals through emails, according to U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr.

“Some of the files contained sadistic or masochistic conduct or other depictions of violence, and some of the children shown in the images and videos were prepubescent and under the age of 12,” Hochul said.
