Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that
Timothy Majeroni, 46, of Portland, was sentenced today in United States District Court by
Judge George Z. Singal to a total of 14½ years imprisonment, consisting of 12½ years
imprisonment for possessing child pornography and an additional 2 years imprisonment for
violating conditions of supervised release. Majeroni was also sentenced to a lifetime of
supervised release following his release from prison. Majeroni was convicted of possessing
child pornography after a two-day jury trial in September of last year, and Judge Singal found
after a hearing today that he had also violated conditions of release imposed as part of a prior
federal prosecution.

According to evidence introduced at trial, in November of 2012, Majeroni’s federal
probation officer discovered a laptop computer in his apartment. The laptop was later found to
contain numerous child pornography images. The evidence at trial also established that
Majeroni had pleaded guilty in 2001 to possession of child pornography. Court records also
show that Majeroni pleaded guilty in 2008 to failing to register as a sex offender, for which he
was still on supervised release at the time of his most recent offense.

The investigation was conducted by the United States Probation Office and the United
States Secret Service.
