FERRISBURGH — Mark Hulett, 48, of Ferrisburgh, was sentenced in United States District Court in Rutland to serve 120 months in prison after his guilty plea to one count of possession of child pornography.
The judge also ordered Hulett to serve a ten-year term of supervised release and to pay a $100 special assessment.
According to court records, the Vermont Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force received a CyberTip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) which reported that a file depicting child pornography had been uploaded to an Internet search engine.
Subsequent investigation of the CyberTip revealed that the file had been uploaded from Hulett’s residence in Ferrisburgh.
On May 14, 2019, members of law enforcement executed a search warrant at the residence and recovered Hulett’s computer and phone.
A forensic search of those devices revealed that Hulett possessed over 2,000 images of child pornography.
Hulett was previously convicted in 2005, in Vermont Superior Court, of aggravated sexual assault and lewd and lascivious conduct with a child.
