Englishman Faces Federal Charge for Porn Production of Minor

BANGOR - The man from England accused of sexually assaulting a 13 year-old Levant girl, is now facing federal charges.

Nicholas Cheese, 26, of Oxford, England, appeared in federal court Friday, facing one count of production of pornography.

 

Court documents allege Cheese met the girl in an online Harry Potter chat room, before flying to Bangor and meeting up with her at a local motel in late June.

 

Authorities say Cheese told officers he knew the girl was 13, and had traveled to have sex with her, having previously asked for nude photos and videos.

 

Those items and at least one sexually explicit photo, taken in Cheese's motel room, were reportedly seized from Cheese's electronic devices.

 

Cheese faces up to 30 years behind bars, if convicted.

 

If convicted in state court, he also faces up to 30 years for gross sexual assault, and up to 10 years for sexual exploitation of a minor. Additionally, he faces fines of up to $50,000 and $20,000 on each charge, respectively.
