A North Adams man was sentenced yesterday in federal court in Springfield to 60 years in prison today for child exploitation offenses.

According to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office, Anthony Deordio, 46, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Mark G. Mastroianni to 60 years in prison and a lifetime of supervised release. In August 2020, Deordio pleaded guilty to one count of sexual exploitation of a minor, three counts of advertising child pornography, two counts of distribution of child pornography, two counts of transportation of child pornography, one count of receipt of child pornography, and one count of possession of child pornography.

In November 2017, Deordio used a minor victim to produce child pornography. The video file he produced was later recovered in a separate jurisdiction, and further investigation led to the identification of Deordio as the perpetrator. He was also convicted of offering to sell child pornography on the internet, distributing child pornography over the internet, and receiving and possessing child pornography.

Deordio was previously convicted of possession of child pornography in Massachusetts state court in 2006.
