North Hampton man to plead guilty in child porn case, lawyer says
Matthew Morvillo, 55, has struck a plea deal with federal prosecutors in U.S. District Court and hopes to resolve similar charges in superior court stemming from a raid at his home last July 12, his lawyer, Kyle Patrick Griffin indicated in court filings..
“Throughout the duration of this matter, Mr. Morvillo has known a period of incarceration is imminent,” Griffin said in court papers. “He has continued to reside at his home in North Hampton. Mr. Morvillo has had possession of his passport and had financial means to travel anywhere yet has remained local.”
“He is ready and willing to accept responsibility for the crime for which he is charged,” Griffin noted in Wednesday’s court filing.
The discs were manufactured outside New Hampshire and “contained primarily images and videos of children under the age of 18 engaged in sexual conduct,” prosecutors said.
Morvillo faces up to 7 ½ to 15 years in prison if the state goes forward in that case.
