          CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE - Gene Mondalto, 37, of Kingston, New Hampshire, pled guilty on January 21, 2016 in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to possessing child pornography, announced United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice.

          A joint investigation by the New Hampshire Crimes Against Children Task Force, Homeland Security Investigations Manchester, and the Kingston, New Hampshire Police Department resulted in the issuance of a search warrant for Mondalto’s residence in Kingston.  When that warrant was executed in August 2015, officers discovered several hundred images of child pornography located on Mondalto’s laptop computer.

          Scheduled for sentencing in May 2016, Mondalto faces a maximum prison term of 10 years, to be followed by a term of at least 5 years of supervised release and a fine of up to $250,000.

          The case was investigated by the New Hampshire Crimes Against Children Task Force in conjunction Homeland Security Investigations Manchester, and the police departments of Kingston and Hampton, New Hampshire.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Nick Abramson.

          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 Attorneys 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 identify and rescue victims.
