[ARCHIVED] Man Charged with Distribution and Possession of Child Pornography

In July of 2017, the Lebanon Police Department Cyber Crime Unit received a cyber-tip from Microsoft, on behalf of their subsidiary Skype, regarding an upload of possible Child Pornography and immediately began to investigate. In November of 2017, the Lebanon Police Department took a report of a 15-year-old female juvenile who was having inappropriate contact via the internet with an adult male. The investigation revealed that in addition to sexually charged conversations, there were images being exchanged.

These ongoing investigations led to Jacob Seace, age 18 of Lebanon, NH, being a person of interest. On November 7, 2017 Lebanon Police Detectives sought to interview Seace regaseacerding these ongoing cases. Seace was located at the Kilton Library and was subsequently arrested when attempting to flee with his cell phone, which was identified as evidence.

A search warrant was later executed on Seace’s cellular phone and a forensic extraction was completed.  That extraction led to an additional search warrant for a cloud-based account that was located on the cellular phone.

Seace’s cloud-based account was found to contain numerous images of very graphic child pornography involving underage children, some as young as 7-years-old.  

After this search warrant was completed and the content reviewed, the Lebanon Police Department arrested Jacob Seace on December 29, 2017 and charged him with 22 counts of Possession of Child Sexual Abuse Images and 1 count of Distribution of Child Sexual Abuse Images, all Class A Felony offenses. The distribution charge was the result of Seace sending a child sexual abuse image from a computer at the Kilton Library via Skype.  Seace was held on $20,000 Cash Bail and was transported to the Grafton County House of Corrections pending arraignment in the Grafton County Superior Court on January 02, 2018.
