Tupper Lake, NY (WIBX) - A Tupper Lake man pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography. The case dates back to 2010, when a joint agency investigation determined that 39-year-old James L. Tabolt had more than 1,300 images of child pornography on his computer.

Under a plea deal, Tabolt faces a minimum of five years in prison and a maximum of 10 years, as well as a $250,000.00 fine. Tabolt will be required to register as a Sex Offender when he’s sentenced in January 2013. The operation that led to the discovery is part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online predators.

Tabolt’s subsequent arrest was the result of a joint investigation conducted by the state police, Tupper Lake Village police, the Franklin and Clinton County sheriff’s departments, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations and the New York State Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce. The Utica Police Department’s Digital Forensics Laboratory also provided assistance.
