Female N.H. Lawyer Held on Federal Child Exploitation and Pornography Charges
Lisa Biron, a prominent conservative lawyer from Manchester, New Hampshire, will remain in federal custody on charges that include sexual exploitation of children and child pornography. Biron, 43, reportedly used Craigslist to find a female victim under the age of 18, then took her across the border to Ontario, Canada, for sexual purposes. She then convinced the teenager to allow her to film the abuse.
On Friday, a judge ordered that Biron, who is associated with a large coalition of Christian lawyers, remain in custody because she poses an ongoing threat to her community. Among the charges facing the lawyer are transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, possession of child pornography and five counts of sexual exploitation of children. Her laptop reportedly held a number of videos and images of child pornography.
The federal charges are in addition to district level charges of child pornography that were fiiled Oct. 9. Those charges stemmed from five videos and two photos found on her computer which showed an underage teen girl engaging in sexual acts with an unknown male. As a condition of her release, Biron was ordered not to have contact with children under the age of 18.
She will be held until the begining of her trial, which is presently set for Jan. 8.
