Project Safe Childhood - Newport Man Pleads Guilty To Child Pornography Possession

          CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE:   Allen Langlois, 49, of Newport, New Hampshire, pled guilty on Monday in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to possessing child pornography, announced United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice.                                            

          An investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation revealed that an individual was accessing a known child pornography website from the defendant’s Newport, New Hampshire residence, for which a federal search warrant was issued.  When that warrant was executed in September 2015, hundreds of still images of child pornography were discovered on Langlois’s personal computer.

          Langlois is scheduled for sentencing in July 2016.  Pursuant to the terms of his plea agreement, he has stipulated to a sentence of 42 months’ imprisonment, followed by an extended period of supervised release.  He also faces a fine of up to $250,000.

          FBI was assisted in this case by the Police Departments of Newport, Manchester, and Nashua, New Hampshire, as well as the New Hampshire State Police.  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, in each district, 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, and to identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit www.projectsafechildhood.gov.
