Andrews previously pleaded guilty on January 15, 2020.

“By transporting child pornography, the defendant was involved in the exploitation of a child,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “Those who create, transport or distribute child pornography do grave harm to the victims who are portrayed in these images.  In order to safeguard our young people, we work closely with HSI and all of our federal, state and local law enforcement partners to identify and prosecute child exploitation and child pornography crimes.”

           This matter was investigated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and the Gilford Police Department.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Cam Le.
