Manchester woman sentenced to 15 years on child sex charge
A 21-year-old Manchester woman has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to the sexual exploitation of a child.
The investigation started last year when the Manchester police received information from the U.S. Air Force that Erin Upham was communicating with a member of the armed services stationed in Okinawa, Japan.
The police said they had information the communication was of a sexual nature and involved a child. A search warrant of her laptop and cell phones showed images of her and the child engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
The airman who had been stationed in Japan, 22-year-old Eric Morrison, was sentenced last week to 17.5 years in prison. Court documents indicate Morrison directed Upham to sexually abuse the child during at least one video chat session.
