Lee Man Charged With Distribution of Child Sexual Abuse Materials

            CONCORD, N.H. – Joshua Olsen, 30, of Lee, New Hampshire, was charged in federal court with distribution of child sexual abuse materials, United States Attorney Jane E. Young announced today.

            Olsen was arrested without incident on Friday, December 9, after investigators executed a search warrant at his residence in Lee. According to court documents and statements made in court, in November, Olsen distributed child pornography to an undercover FBI agent through on-line chat platforms. 

            Olsen had an initial appearance hearing in federal district court last Friday. At that time, the Court ordered him detained pending a detention hearing that was scheduled for today. At today’s detention hearing the Court ordered Olsen detained pending trial.

            This case was investigated by the FBI and the Lee Police Department. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Kasey Weiland.

            A complaint is merely an allegation and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
