Raymond Man Sentenced to 30 Years for Producing Child Pornography

          CONCORD, N.H. – Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today that David Liverman, 33, of Raymond, New Hampshire was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison to be followed by lifetime supervised release for producing child pornography.

 

          On May 23, 2017, Liverman pleaded guilty to one count of child pornography production. According to statements in court and court documents, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) began to investigate Liverman based on information that a Dallas, Texas email account was engaged in trading child pornography. One of the email accounts which the Dallas email account traded with belonged to Liverman. Evidence from Liverman’s email account, including items depicted in some of the child pornography images, coupled with interviews conducted by Homeland Security Investigations, demonstrated that Liverman had produced in his home some of the child pornography images that he was trading.

 

          "Preventing the production of child pornography is a high priority of the U.S. Attorney’s Office,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Farley. “We are committed to working with our law enforcement partners to identify and prosecute these troubling cases. By aggressively pursuing those who produce child pornography, we hope to deter others from engaging in similar egregious conduct in the future. This horrific conduct is harmful to young children and their families and does serious damage to our entire community.”

 

          “The protection of children from sexual exploitation, as well as holding accountable those who produce and distribute child pornography, continues to be a high priority for Homeland Security Investigations,” said Matthew Etre, Special Agent in Charge, HSI Boston. “I’m proud of the work HSI and our New Hampshire law enforcement partners did to identify this predator and rescue the victim in this egregious case — as well as the ongoing work the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force is doing to prevent future crimes against other children.”

 

          The investigation in this case was led by Homeland Security Investigations, The Federal Bureau of Investigations, and the Raymond, New Hampshire Police Department with the assistance of the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Seth Aframe.

 

          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 Attorney’s 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.
