Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Daniel Lajoie, Jr., 46, of Oakland, Maine, pleaded guilty today in U.S District Court to possession of child pornography.

According to court records and proceedings, between April 29, 2012 and June 3, 2012, the defendant used a computer and peer-to-peer software to make available for sharing videos of child pornography.  A federal agent, acting in an undercover capacity, downloaded seven of those videos and eventually traced the online activity to a computer Lajoie possessed at a residence in Randolph, Maine. Lajoie’s computer was seized and examined and investigators found over 50 images and 110 videos of child pornography.

Lajoie faces up to ten 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 investigation was conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Task Force.
