Keene Man Sentenced For Possession Of Child Pornography

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

          CONCORD, N.H. - Andrew Beezub, 34, of Keene, was sentenced on Thursday to 37 months in federal prison for possessing child pornography, Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today.  


          According to court documents and statements made in court, the national Center for Missing and Exploited Children became aware in February 2016 that images and videos of suspected child pornography had been uploaded to a Dropbox account.  Additional investigation by the Keene Police Department determined that the account was associated with the defendant.  A search warrant in April 2016 resulted in the seizure of the defendant’s computer and telephone.  A forensic analysis of the defendant’s telephone established its link to the Dropbox account where videos of child pornography were stored.


          Beezub pleaded guilty on May 1, 2017, to one count of possessing child pornography.  After servicing his sentence, he will be on supervised release for five years.


          The U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and the Keene Police Department investigated the case.  Assistance was also provided by the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, the Hinsdale Police Department, and the Hampton Police Department.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Donald Feith.


          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.
