Laconia man gets 6 years in prison for child pornography

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) - Federal authorities say a 51-year-old Laconia man has been sentenced to six years in prison for possession of child pornography.

U.S. Attorney John Kacavas says Daniel Petrin was also fined $5,000 this week, will spend 10 years on probation after his release and will have to register as a sex offender.

Authorities began investigating Petrin in 2009 after the FBI got information that he was among several people who bought pornographic images from a person in Italy.

Undercover law enforcement agents in Vermont and Oklahoma traced images detected in a file-sharing network to Petrin.
