CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — A Penfield man will spend up to 40 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to child pornography charges.

Attorney General Michelle Henry announced that Raymond Mikelonis, 67, was sentenced Wednesday to 15 to 40 years in prison. He pleaded guilty to felony counts of possession of child pornography, distribution of child pornography, and criminal use of a communication facility.


An investigation began in June 2022 when special agents from the Attorney General Office’s Child Predator Section were investigating potential child porn files being downloaded. According to court documents, videos of 9-year-old girls engaging in sexual activity were being shared from a computer with Mikelonis’ IP address.

Henry said investigators executed a search warrant at Mikelonis’ home, and found files containing child pornography on his computer. The sentencing judge deemed Mikelonis a sexually violent predator and Mikelonis will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

“This defendant has shown he is not amenable to treatment or reform, and continues to abuse children, making him a danger to society,” Henry said. “These videos and images perpetuate the abuse and corruption of minors, and my office will do everything in our power to protect children and hold abusers accountable.”

This was Mikelonis’ third conviction for sexual abuse charges as he was previously convicted of child sexual assault and possession of child pornography. The case was prosecuted by Senior Deputy Attorney General Angela Raver.
