US man sentenced over child pornography

Baltimore, Aug 17 : U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett sentenced James Andrew Wagner, age 43, of Hagerstown, Maryland, on Friday to four years in prison, followed by 10 years of supervised release, for possession of child pornography.


Judge Bennett ordered that upon his release from prison, Wagner must register as a sex offender in the place where he resides, where he is an employee, and where he is a student, under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA).

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein and Special Agent in Charge Stephen E. Vogt of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

According to the plea agreement, on April 7, 2011, an undercover FBI agent in Kansas City, Kansas downloaded 16 images from Wagner by using a file sharing program connected to the Internet.

All the files depicted minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct. On November 28, 2011, an undercover FBI agent in Baltimore used a file sharing program to download 58 files from Wagner that contained child pornography.

On December 22, 2011, a search warrant was executed at Wagner's home and agents seized computers and digital media.

A review of the images on Wagner's computers and other devices revealed well over 600 files of child pornography, separated into hundreds of folders organized by the name of the minor depicted in the files.

At the time of the offense, Wagner was a civilian police officer at Fort Detrick.
