Aston man sentenced to 90 years in federal prison

-

PHILADELPHIA – Matthew Maffei, aka “Uncle Matt,” of Aston, Delaware County, PA, was sentenced today to 90 years in federal prison for his manufacture of sexually explicit images of the 7-year old daughter of his childhood friend, and the transportation, receipt, and possession of child pornography.

The Honorable Mitchell S. Goldberg, USDJ in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, also imposed lifetime supervised release, a $20,000 assessment pursuant to the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act, $5,000 in restitution, and a $400 special assessment. Maffei, a first time offender, previously pled guilty to all charges in the federal indictment.

The Government sought the statutory maximum sentence of 90 years based on the defendant’s horrific sexual abuse of the young victim. Maffei sexually abused the 7-year old child in the victim’s own home, as her parents slept in the next bedroom. He also forced the victim’s 5- year old brother to witness his abuse of the 7-year old on one occasion, and threatened to kill both children if they told their parents what Maffei had done.

As part of the sexual assaults on this child, the defendant defecated on her face. Calling the sexual assaults “unspeakable,” the District Court imposed a prison sentence of 90 years, asking the parents to assure the victim and her brother that “this defendant will never in this lifetime be released from custody.”

The case was investigated by the FBI in conjunction with the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office and the Internet Crimes Against Children Unit (ICAC), as well as the Middleton Township, DE Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michelle Rotella.
