Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Anthony Parent, 23, of Milford, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to 10 years in prison and 10 years of supervised release for possessing child pornography.  He was also ordered to pay $7,000 in restitution to victims of his offense. He pleaded guilty on October 30, 2015.

According to court records, from about October 31, 2013 to about July 17, 2014, Parent kept images and videos of child pornography on his personal computer, uploaded them to online accounts, and used electronic mail services to trade child pornography with others. 

In imposing the sentence, Judge Woodcock commented that the images possessed by the defendant, some depicting the sexual abuse of babies, were “abhorrent” and “unspeakable.”

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Maine State Police, and the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office.
