Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that
Jacob Rogeski, 25, of Fort Fairfield, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor, by
Chief District Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to 5 years imprisonment, to be followed by 10 years
of supervised release, for possession of child pornography. Rogeski pled guilty to the offense on
August 7, 2012.
Court documents revealed that in September 2011 investigators learned that an internet
user, with an IP address assigned to Rogeski, was downloading child pornography. On
September 15, 2011, investigators went to Rogeski’s residence and obtained his consent to
search his computer. Rogeski admitted that he had searched on a peer-to-peer file sharing
program for child pornography and had downloaded images and videos of child pornography. A
forensic examination of the computer revealed over 100 video files and over 400 image files that
depicted child pornography. The Court also ordered the forfeiture of the computer equipment
used to download, store and view the child pornography.
The investigation was conducted jointly by the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit
and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
