Newmarket man gets jail for seeking abuse images
Jesse Daniel McManus, 24, pleaded guilty to three counts that he attempted to download photos of children engaged in sexual acts on Dec. 5, 2007, prosecutors said.
Indictments say that McManus had sought out images of young children engaged in sexual acts.
McManus was scheduled to go on trial the week of Feb. 3 in Rockingham County Superior Court.
A recording of the interview was apparently lost by police, according to public defenders.
Dupont argued that without the recording, a jury would be led to believe that McManus made a “blanket confession” to the detective.
As part of his sentence, McManus will also be required to undergo sex offender treatment and any other counseling recommended by corrections officials. He received two other suspended prison sentences of 3 ½ to 7 years that can be imposed within the next 10 years.
