Project Safe Childhood - Kingston Man Sentenced For Child Pornography Possession

            CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE:   Gene Mondalto, 37, of Kingston, New Hampshire, was sentenced to 60 months in federal prison by the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire after pleading guilty to one count of possessing child pornography, announced United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice.

            Information provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) led federal and state investigators to Mondalto’s Kingston, New Hampshire residence, where they discovered hundreds of videos and still images of child pornography on Mondalto’s personal computer.

            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, Hampton, Allenstown, Litchfield, Manchester, Portsmouth, Rye, and Salem, New Hampshire.

            The case was 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.
