A federal court jury has convicted a former selectman in a small New Hampshire town of possession of child pornography. The jury deliberated about three hours before returning its guilty verdict Thursday in the case of Jonathan Tanguay, 42, who was a Bartlett selectman when he was first indicted on state child pornography charges in 2010. Carroll County prosecutors dropped those charges after a federal grand jury indicted Tanguay in December 2011. Concord police Detective Mark Dumas, a member of the statewide Internet Crimes Against Children unit, testified during the five-day trial in Concord that he found ‘‘a whole bunch of child pornography’’ on Tanguay’s computer.
