CONCORD — Marc Pulsifer, 45, of Concord, was sentenced to 78 months in prison for the federal charge of transportation of child pornography.
According to court documents and statements made in court, law enforcement officers learned that Google had detected potential child exploitation materials on Google Photos accounts with an IP address that resolved to Concord, New Hampshire, at various times in 2020.
Through their investigation, officers determined that Pulsifer had uploaded child sexual abuse images and child images to Google Photos from his apartment in Concord.
