N.H. woman gets 40 years for using teen girl in child porn

CONCORD, N.H., May 24 (UPI) -- A former New Hampshire lawyer has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for using a teenage girl in pornographic videos.

Lisa Biron, 43, was convicted in January of eight counts -- including taking the girl, who was 14 at the time, to Canada in May 2012 with the intent to film child pornography.

Videos shown during the trial showed the girl losing her virginity, having intercourse with men and engaging in oral sex with Biron.

Concord District Court Judge Paul Barbadoro said as he pronounced the sentence Biron's crimes were "extraordinarily egregious" and damage to the teen was "incalculable," the Concord Monitor reported Friday.

"That you were willing to exploit her for your own personal gratification is shocking," he said. "It makes your crime so serious and worthy of such a lengthy sentence."

Prosecutors had asked for a sentence of 100 years, but the teenage victim had asked the court to give Biron "a second chance," and the judge said the only reason he did not impose a life sentence is that he wanted "the victim to know that I have heard her."

U.S. Attorney John Kacavas said in a statement the sentence amounts to a life sentence that "effectively removes [Biron] from society for the balance of her life and eradicates the threat she poses to minors and adolescents."

Biron's attorney said his client will appeal, the newspaper reported.

Speaking at her sentencing, Biron said she had failed as a Christian and was sorry, but Barbadoro noted reports Biron had made comments while in jail that the victim "had a frickin' part in this ... probably bigger than anyone else's."
