CONCORD, N.H. - The U.S. attorney for New Hampshire says a lawyer charged with exploiting a 14-year-old girl to produce child pornography is a predator.

John Kacavas said in opening statements at the woman's trial Wednesday she took the girl to Ontario in May 2012 to videotape her engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

He said she was the girl's "pot pusher, her pornography producer and her predator."

The woman, arrested in November, has pleaded not guilty.

Her lawyer, James Moir (MOY'-er) told jurors they will find the case shocking, but the issue is whether the government proves each element of the crimes beyond a reasonable doubt.

The woman has not been named to avoid identifying the girl, who is a relative.
