ELLSWORTH, Maine — A Bangor man recently began serving a 2½-year sentence for possession of child pornography.

Chad A. Leavitt, 27, was convicted earlier this month in Hancock County Superior Court of two counts of possession of sexually explicit materials involving children. One count involved materials involving children under age 12 while the other involved children under age 16.

The charges stem from a case from April 2010 that was handled by the state police’s computer crimes unit. Leavitt, who lived in Ellsworth when he was indicted in April 2011, began serving his sentence in the Hancock County jail Wednesday.
