Medford Man Sentenced In Child Pornography Case

RSS feed

BOSTON – A Medford man was sentenced today for possessing child pornography.

James Patrick Judge, 58, was sentenced by United States District Judge William G. Young to three years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release. In January, Judge pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

In 2011, Judge was arrested after receiving a child pornography video he had ordered through the mail. In a separate case, in May 2012, Judge was arrested at the Medford Public Library after allegedly using the library’s computer to view and print pornographic images of boys. A probable cause hearing in that case is scheduled for April 30, in Somerville District Court.

U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz; Kevin Niland, Inspector in Charge of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service; Bruce Foucart, Special Agent in Charge of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations in Boston; and Chief Leo A. Sacco, Jr. of the Medford Police Department, made the announcement today. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys David G. Tobin and Suzanne M. Sullivan of Ortiz’s Major Crimes Unit.
