United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Daniel Lajoie Jr., 46, of Bowdoinham, was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock Jr. to 57 months in prison to be followed by five years of supervised release for possession of child pornography.

Lajoie pleaded guilty to the charge on Oct. 8, 2015.

According to court records and proceedings, between April 29 and June 3, 2012, Lajoie 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 traced them to a computer Lajoie used at a residence in Oakland. Lajoie’s computer was seized and examined and investigators found more than 50 images and 110 videos of child pornography.

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