Bangor Man Pleads Guilty To Possessing Child Pornography

Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that David Jack, 43, of Bangor, pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court to possessing child pornography.

According to court records, in the summer of 2016, the defendant, while living in Bangor, used his cellular telephone to show images of children engaged in sexual activity to a 9-year-old girl.  Shortly thereafter, detectives with the Bangor Police Department obtained a search warrant for the defendant’s home and seized two laptop computers and a cellular telephone.  A forensic examination of those devices revealed over two thousand images of children, many of them prepubescent, engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

The defendant faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. He will be sentenced after the completion of a presentence investigation report by the U.S. Probation Office.

The case was investigated by the Bangor Police Department and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
