Sean Gleason, 36, of Dennis Port was sentenced Monday by U.S. District Court Judge Denise J. Casper to 68 months in prison and five years of supervised release.

In August 2020, Gleason pleaded guilty to one count of receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

During an investigation it was determined that Gleason was using a messaging application in the exchange of child pornography.

A search of Gleason’s cell phone on September 10, 2019 revealed hundreds of images of child pornography.

After a full forensic review of Gleason’s phone, about 498 images and at least one video of child pornography were on the phone. The cache of child pornography included images depicting the abuse of infants, toddlers and prepubescent minors.

Indictments and criminal information and complaints are only allegations. All persons charged are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.
