The state Attorney General's Office said the state's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force has successfully obtained two pleas in Bernalillo County and has another sentenced.
Charles Boston, 35, of Albuquerque, pled no contest to one count of child solicitation by electronic communication device, a third degree felony. Boston will be sentenced tentatively on Oct. 19 at 8:30 a.m.
James Carney Ritterhoff, 39, entered a guilty plea under a plea agreement. The Albuquerque resident and former Missouri law enforcement officer pled guilty to two charges of receiving child pornography. He's sentenced to 7 ½ years in prison followed by ten years of supervised release.
Jason Cantrell, 32, of Las Vegas, was sentenced to 10 ½ years , though six years have been suspended, for three counts of possession of child pornography and two counts of child pornography distribution. Cantrell will be placed on the state sex offender registration list.
