BROOKLINE MAN SENTENCED TO 5 YEARS FOR TRANSPORTATION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY
BOSTON, MA - A former Brookline resident was sentenced today in federal court to 5 years in prison for transportation and possession of child pornography.
United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and Warren T. Bamford, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation - Boston Field Division, announced today that ROBERT GAMERE, age 71, formerly of Brookline, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge William G. Young to 60 months in prison to be followed by a lifetime term of supervised release based on his conviction for transportation and possession of child pornography.
At the defendant’s guilty plea on September 8, 2009, the prosecutor told the Court that had the case proceeded to trial the Government’s evidence would have shown that on April 5, 2007 and April 11, 2007, GAMERE, using his AOL screen name GreatGamere, sent videos containing child pornography via the internet to an AOL subscriber in another state. In addition, the prosecutor told the Court that agents searched GAMERE's Brookline residence on October 30, 2007 and recovered a computer containing child pornography.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Richardson in Ortiz's Major Crimes Unit.
