Chambersburg man sentenced for child exploitation

HARRISBURG – The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of
Pennsylvania announced today that Brian A. Salvado, age 46, of Chambersburg,
was sentenced on Nov. 25, to 20 years’ imprisonment followed by 15 years of
supervised release by Senior U.S. District Court Judge Sylvia H. Rambo, for exploitation of
minors.
According to U.S. Attorney David J. Freed, between 2016 and 2107, Salvado
used a dating site and his cellular telephone to communicate online and via text message with 11 minor victims for the purpose of producing child pornography. This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney James T. Clancy prosecuted the case.


This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched
in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual
exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s
Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and
local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children,
and to identify and rescue victims.
