Portland, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Jody G. Moczara, 35, of Sabattus, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge George Z. Singal to 135 months in prison to be followed by 10 years of supervised release for receiving child pornography. Moczara pleaded guilty to the charge on October 14, 2015.

According to court records, in June of 2015, Moczara used the internet and a file sharing program to download several child pornography videos to his computer. Information obtained from his computer showed that he used the file-sharing program to search for child pornography. The computer contained large numbers of child pornography video files and still images, including images depicting children in bondage, in pain or discomfort, and engaging in bestiality.

The investigation was conducted by the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
