PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A 26-year-old Portland man is going to prison for 25 years for producing child pornography.
David Muise was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Torresen in Portland.
Muise pleaded guilty in January to taking a series of digital photographs of a 4-year-old girl and transmitting several of them - including one showing the girl engaged in sexually explicit activity with Muise - to a man in South Carolina using an instant messaging program.
A search warrant executed at Muise's residence last September revealed numerous sexually explicit photos of the girl stored in multiple electronics devices.
