Written by

BANGOR - Two Old Town men pleaded guilty Monday to child pornography charges after authorities said they persuaded two minors to send videos of them engaging in sexual activity.

According to federal court records, Patrick Monahan, 52, and 46-year-old Kenneth Mclay then posted the videos on a publicly accessible pornography website.

 

Court records show they also had child pornography on their computers.

 

The charges against them include sexual exploitation of children and distribution and possession of child pornography.

 

Monahan faces between 10 and 25 years in prison as well as a fine of up to $250,000 for each charge. Mclay faces a 15- to 40-year prison term as well as a fine of up to $250,000 per charge.

 

Both men will be sentenced at a later date.
