Windham man sentenced in child pornography case
Prosecutors say that Roth compiled a collection of images and videos that depicted underage boys engaged in sexual contact with adult men.
Roth was arrested in January by Windham police and remained free on bail until his sentencing on Thursday.
Police learned about Roth’s pornography collection through Cybertips, operated by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. The information was passed on to police Sgt. Tom Grella, commander of the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
Police interviewed Roth and his family during the investigation. The investigation revealed that Roth had uploaded and shared some of his collection with other people through the Internet, prosecutors said.
He received suspended 3- to 6-year prison sentences on five other charges, which would run consecutively if they were ever imposed.
Prosecutors could ask a judge to impose those sentences in the next 20 years if Roth does not remain on good behavior or comply with the terms of his plea agreement.
Judge Brian T. Tucker accepted the negotiated plea deal, and ordered Roth to undergo the state’s Sexual Offender Program. Tucker accepted the plea and sentenced Roth on Thursday. Police in Portsmouth, Windham, Derry, Nashua, Hinsdale and Rindge played a role in the investigation.
