For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Massachusetts

BOSTON – A Quincy man pleaded guilty in federal court today to receiving child pornography.

Matthew Ormon, 51, pleaded guilty to one count of receipt of child pornography. U.S. District Court Judge Denise J. Casper scheduled sentencing for Oct. 18, 2023. Ormon was indicted on Jun. 7, 2022

During a search of Ormon’s residence on Apr. 5, 2022, multiple electronic devices, including two custom built computers and a network drive device were seized. At least one device was found to contain a folder with numerous videos depicting child pornography. 

The charge of receipt of child pornography provides for a sentence of at least five years and up to 20 years in prison, at least five years and up to a lifetime of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and statutes which govern the determination of a sentence in a criminal case.

United States Attorney Joshua S. Levy and Christopher DiMenna, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Division, made the announcement. Special assistance was provided by the Quincy Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Charles Dell’Anno and Meghan C. Cleary of the Criminal Division are prosecuting the case.

The case is brought as part of Project Safe Childhood. In 2006, the Department of Justice created Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from exploitation and abuse. Led by the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the DOJ’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children, as well as identify and rescue victims.
