Massachusetts Man Sentenced to 8 Years for Child Sexual Abuse Material Offenses After HSI Investigation

Release Date: May 1, 2024

BOSTON — A Bourne man was sentenced April 30 in a federal court in Boston for receiving and possessing child sexual abuse material and violating the terms of his supervised release.

Bryan C. Mileikis, 37, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani to eight years in prison followed by five years of supervised release. Talwani also ordered him to pay $18,000 in restitution. Mileikis received a two-year concurrent sentence for violating the terms of his supervised release on two prior federal armed bank robbery convictions unrelated to the child sexual abuse material case. In October 2023, he pleaded guilty to one count of receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

An HSI New England cybercrime investigation identified Mileikis as the owner of a Kik messaging account distributing child sexual abuse material online. When HSI special agents searched Mileikis’ residence in June 2019, they seized his iPhone and conducted a forensic examination that revealed approximately 156 images and 22 videos depicting child sexual abuse of prepubescent and pubescent boys and girls, including children ranging from approximately one year old to approximately 17 years old. The files also included depictions of adults sexually abusing children. At the time of the offense, Mileikis was on federal supervised release for two armed bank robbery convictions for which he was sentenced to 110 months in prison.

Acting U.S. Attorney Joshua S. Levy, HSI Boston Special Agent in Charge Michael J. Krol, FBI Boston Special Agent in Charge Jodi Cohen and Bourne Police Chief Brandon Esip made the announcement May 1. Assistant U.S. Attorney Suzanne Sullivan Jacobus of the Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.

HSI is a global leader in the fight against child exploitation. Last year, HSI special agents dedicated 1.2 million case hours to investigating child exploitation. This heinous crime harms the most vulnerable in our society: Our kids. As technology evolves and more people have access to the internet, children are at a greater risk than ever. HSI’s special agents and analysts around the world are dedicated to countering this threat.

Report suspected child exploitation to the HSI tip line at 877-4-HSI-TIP or through the CyberTipline on the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children's website.
