Greenland Man Pleads Guilty to Possessing Child Pornography

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of New Hampshire

            CONCORD, N.H. - Jason Stone, 39, of Greenland, New Hampshire, pleaded guilty in federal court to possessing child pornography, Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today.

 

            According to court documents and statements made in court, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at the defendant's residence in October 2016.  A review of various electronic devices found in the residences showed that they contained more than 100 images and videos of child pornography.     

 

            Stone is scheduled to be sentenced on May 1, 2018.

 

            “Child pornography crimes jeopardize the innocence of young people,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Farley.   “Through the Project Safe Childhood initiative, the U.S. Attorney’s Office works closely with our law enforcement partners to identify and prosecute those who possess child pornography, as well as those who produce or distribute this material.”

 

               This matter was investigated by the Homeland Security Investigations.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles L. Rombeau.

 

            In February 2006, the Department of Justice introduced Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.  Led by the United States Attorney’s Offices, 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 to identify and rescue victims.
