CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – A Concord man has been sentenced to 15 years in jail following his plea last year to possessing child pornography.

Paul Peters, 50, was arrested over the summer in an investigation led by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. He was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court.

Authorities found hundreds of photographs and films of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct on Peters’ computer and discs at his house.

U.S. Attorney Tom Colantuono had said Peters previously had been convicted of sexually assaulting children.
