CONCORD, N.H. — A Somersworth man has been sentenced to 20 years in federal prison for having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old Maine boy and for possessing child pornography.
Scott Wilson, 41, formerly of 7 Cinnamon Ridge, was arrested last year after Somersworth police received information that he had used his computer to lure a 13-year-old Maine boy for sex.
Wilson allegedly used a MySpace account to begin a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old boy from Maine in 2005.
The two communicated via e-mail and instant message before Wilson allegedly drove to Maine and brought the boy back to his home in Somersworth, where the pair engaged in sexual activity.
These encounters between Wilson and the boy occurred twice monthly, according to police. There were also visits where Wilson would pay other men to have sex with the 13-year-old, who had recently come out as gay, as reported by Somersworth Police Detective Eric Chandler in 2009.
The boy’s mother allegedly called police when she found a pornographic image on his telephone.
When police searched Wilson’s Cinnamon Ridge home, they discovered child pornography images on his computer.
Wilson was arrested in November 2009 on sexual assault and prostitution charges and held on $500,000 bail.
