Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Andy Quinn Goodall, 29, most recently of Bangor, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to 20 years and 10 months in prison to be followed by a lifetime of supervised release for sexual exploitation of a minor.  The defendant pled guilty to the charge on January 29, 2016. 

According to court records and proceedings, the defendant took sexually explicit images of two prepubescent minors, uploaded them to a foreign website, and provided links to the images in emails he sent to others.  In addition, the defendant possessed hundreds of images and dozens of videos of child pornography.  While announcing his sentence, Judge Woodcock stated: “There is a giant step between viewing images and producing them. … The defendant was in a position of trust.  He was babysitting the victims.  He consciously and intentionally violated this trust. … The role of a judge in a case like this is to protect the people who can’t protect themselves.”  

The investigation was conducted jointly by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, the Bangor Police Department, and the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office.
