Portsmouth Police detectives arrested a University of New Hampshire student on Wednesday, Sept. 25, as part of an ongoing investigation into the illegal use of computers and the possible sexual activity involving a minor under the age of 16.

Julio Gleske, 30, was charged with two class B felonies: one count of certain uses of computer services prohibited and one count of felonious sexual assault. The arrest and charges came after a search Wednesday at Gleske's residence, 126 Penhallow St., Portsmouth, N.H. 

The search was part of an investigation that was conducted by detectives assigned to the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force, according to the press release.

The press release stated that the mission of this task force is to "protect the State of New Hampshire's children through the continued enforcement of laws designed to prevent the manufacturing and distribution of child sexual abuse images."

Gleske has been released on bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on Oct. 21 at the Portsmouth Court.

"In complying with FERPA [Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act], I can tell you that Mr. Gleske was a UNH student and is not currently a student," Erika Mantz, director of Media Relations at UNH, said of Gleske's current status at the university.

Dean of Students Anne Lawing said that this federal regulation, FERPA, "prohibits disclosure of any student's educational record without the student's consent."

Gleske was a staff member at The New Hampshire, but no longer works for the publication.
