Project Safe Childhood - Newport Man Sentenced For Child Pornography Possession

            CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE:   Allen Langlois, 49, of Newport, New Hampshire, was sentenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire, for possessing child pornography.  According to United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice, the Court imposed a sentence of 42 months’ imprisonment, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release.

             In the fall of 2015, after a lengthy investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation found a collection of hundreds of still images of child pornography on the defendant’s personal computer.  The defendant admitted to downloading child pornography content from several different internet websites, including sites on the dark web.

            The 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 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, and to identify and rescue victims.
