BOSTON — A Wareham man will serve 10 years in prison after he was sentenced yesterday in federal court in Boston for possessing child pornography — his second such offense.

David St. Jacques, 57, pleaded guilty to one count of possessing child pornography in April, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

In September 2020, a search of his home resulted in authorities seizing a computer, three phones and one thumb drive that contained child pornography.

St. Jacques destroyed at least two other drives and tried to destroy one of his phones when agents arrived to search the premises, the office stated.

He also admitted to exchanging child pornography with other people on various apps.

St. Jacques had previously been convicted in March 2009 of several counts of possessing and disseminating child pornography.

The 10-year sentence is the mandatory minimum due to St. Jacques' prior felony conviction.

He will also spend five years on supervised release after his prison term.

Child porn possession charges can bring up to 20 years in prison, up to life of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.
