Bartlett Man Sentenced On Child Pornography Charge

  CONCORD, N.H. – Jonathan Tanguay, 42, of Bartlett, New Hampshire, was sentenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to 84 months in prison, announced United States Attorney John P. Kacavas.

            In February of 2010, a search warrant executed at Tanguay’s home revealed a laptop computer, external hard drive and compact disc containing child pornography images.  Tanguay was convicted of knowingly possessing those images in October 2013 after a three-day jury trial.

            Special Agent Phil Bleezarde led the investigation for the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customers Enforcement Division, and Concord Police Detective Mark Dumas, a member of the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, was the lead computer forensic examiner on the case.  This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Seth R. Aframe and Nick Abramson.

This case was being prosecuted under Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative by the U.S. Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.   Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as identify and rescue victims.
