Former editor indicted on child porn charges
OSSIPEE — A retired newspaper editor with a summer home in Wakefield has been indicted on eight felony counts of possession of child pornography.
A Carroll County Superior Court grand jury on May 17 handed up the indictments alleging that Edward C. Domaingue, 65, of Ormand, Fla., on or about Sept. 4, 2012, committed the crime of possession of child sexual abuse images. The images listed in the indictments are two computer video files and six photograph files of girls under the age of 18 engaged in sexual activities. Each charge is a Class A-level felony punishable by a prison term of seven and one half to 15 years.
Domaingue, formerly the vice president of news for the Union Leader Corp., is scheduled to appear on the charges in Carroll County Superior Court on June 5. He was arrested March 15 by the Wakefield Police Department — he had turned himself in — and was charged with one count of possession of child pornography. He was released on $10,000 personal recognizance bail.
Domaingue and his attorney, David Ruoff of Manchester, appeared in 3rd Circuit Court, Ossipee District Division, April 17 where he waived a probable cause hearing. Judge Robert Varney approved the waiver and made no changes to bail conditions at that time.
In March, Wakefield Police Department officials said they teamed up with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force in August of 2012 after receiving information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that Domaingue allegedly possessed child pornography on his computer. Search warrants in the case have been sealed.
Domaingue worked for the newspaper for 28 years, retiring in 2010. He declined comment this week and Ruoff did not return a call.
