Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Joseph
Finocchiaro, 62, of Bath, was sentenced today in United States District Court by Judge Nancy
Torresen to 21 months in prison to be followed by 5 years of supervised release for possessing
child pornography. Finocchiaro pled guilty to the charge on February 6, 2013.

According to court records, in October of 2012, investigators executed a search warrant
at Finocchiaro’s residence in Bath and seized several collages of child pornography depicting
children ranging in age from toddlers to about 15 years old. Finocchiaro printed the images
from an internet photo-sharing website and assembled them into the collages.

The investigation was conducted by the United States Postal Inspection Service, with
assistance from the Bath Police Department.
