Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that
Nicholas Cheese, 27, of Oxford, England, was sentenced today to 17 years in prison and 5 years
of supervised release for producing child pornography. He pled guilty to the charge on October
18, 2013.

Court documents reflect that in 2012, Cheese developed an on-line relationship with a 12-
year-old girl from Maine, chatting and e-mailing with her and exchanging photographs. In June
2013, he traveled from England to Bangor and sexually assaulted her at a Bangor hotel. He
recorded one of the assaults.

The case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland
Security Investigations, in Bangor and London, England; the Bangor Police Department; the
Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office; and the Thames Valley Police in Oxford, England.
