Charges have been announced against a New Hampshire man accused of having images of child sexual abuse in his possession.
Jared Levesque, 22, was arrested by police in Nashua on Friday following an investigation of an electronic device he owned which was found to have images of child sexual abuse.
Levesque, who already had an active warrant for failure to appear in court for simple assault relating to a domestic violence incident, was charged with possession of child sexual abuse images, a Class A felony in New Hampshire.
Nashua police said they initially began investigating Levesque in May after receiving a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).
