Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that David
Muise, 26, of Portland, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Portland by Judge Nancy
Torresen to 25 years in prison and 20 years of supervised release for producing child
pornography. Muise pled guilty to the charge on January 29, 2013.
According to court records, in August of 2011, Muise took a series of digital pictures of a
minor female. One of the pictures depicted the minor engaged in sexually explicit activity with
Muise. In April of 2012, Muise engaged in a chat over the internet with an individual in South
Carolina using an instant messaging program. During the chat, Muise sent several pictures
depicting the minor, including the sexually explicit picture that he had taken in August of 2011.
A search warrant executed at Muise’s residence in September of 2012 revealed numerous
sexually explicit photographs of the minor stored in multiple electronic devices.
The investigation was conducted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland
Security Investigations, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Portland Police Department, and
the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
