Corinth Man Sentenced to Four Years for Possession of Child Pornography
BANGOR, ME—United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that David Livingston Brown, 41, of Corinth, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge George Z. Singal to four years in prison to be followed by eight years of supervised release for possession of child pornography. Brown pleaded guilty to the charge on July 28, 2014.
According to court records, in April 2013, Brown e-mailed a video containing child pornography to an undercover federal agent. On July 18, 2013, a search warrant was executed at the defendant’s residence in Corinth. The defendant admitted sending and receiving images of child pornography by e-mail and collecting hundreds of images and videos of child pornography over several years. A forensic examination of computers and computer storage devices seized from the residence revealed hundreds of images and videos of child pornography.
The investigation was conducted jointly by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit. This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
