Calvert County Man Indicted for Distribution and Possession of Child Pornography

                Grenbelt, Maryland - A federal grand jury has indicted Lawrence Francis Robinson, age 30, of North Beach, Maryland, today for distribution and possession of child pornography.

“Children are sexually abused to produce these images.  Anyone who has information about sexual abuse of a child should contact the FBI at (410) 265-8080,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein.  “Local, state and federal law enforcement agencies are united in our commitment to combat sexual exploitation of children.”

According to the seven count indictment, on December 31, 2007, Robinson allegedly distributed child pornography, specifically, images documenting the sexual abuse of young males, including prepubescent males. The indictment alleges that two of the distributed images depict unidentified adult males using force to sexually abuse boys.  The indictment also alleges that in November and December, 2009, Robinson had child pornography on his computer.  The indictment seeks forfeiture of computers and any other property used or intended to be used to distribute and possess child pornography. 

Law enforcement discovered the files allegedly sent by Robinson during the forensic analysis of a computer in another case, according to affidavits filed in support of searches of Robinson’s home and computer.                                                       

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice.  Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
