Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Ronald
H. Trecartin, 31, of Linneus, Maine, was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court in Bangor
to 10 years in prison and 20 years of supervised release for possession of child pornography. He
pled guilty on November 6, 2013.

According to court records, in May 2012, a law enforcement agent learned that videos
containing child pornography were being shared over a file sharing network from a computer
located at Trecartin’s residence in Linneus. On September 26, 2012, agents executed a search
warrant at the residence and seized two laptop computers and other media and electronic devices
belonging to Trecartin. A forensic examination of the items seized revealed that three contained
child pornography.

The investigation was conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s
Homeland Security Investigations.
