Portland, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Kevin Millette, 44, of Alfred, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge Nancy Torresen to 10 years in prison to be followed by seven years of supervised release for possessing child pornography. Millette pleaded guilty to the charge on January 28, 2016. He was also ordered to pay a total of $39,000 in restitution to victims depicted in the images he possessed.

According to court records, in November 2015, agents from Homeland Security Investigations executed a search warrant at Millette’s residence in Alfred. Millette was present, and agreed to be interviewed after waiving his Miranda rights. He admitted that he had accessed child pornography recently using his phone, and estimated that he had thousands of child pornography images on the phone.

Investigators seized three cell phones and a memory card from the residence. One of the phones was in the process of downloading child pornography images when it was seized. A forensic analysis of the phone and its memory card revealed thousands of digital still images depicting children engaging in sexually explicit conduct, as well as a smaller number of child pornography videos. Another memory card was also found to contain child pornography images.

Millette was subject to an enhanced mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years imprisonment because he had a prior child pornography conviction.

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