Lawrence Fox, 27 of LaPlata, pleaded guilty today, Oct. 1, to possession of child pornography, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.

According to Fox’s plea agreement, a search warrant was executed at his home and the computers used by Fox were seized .  A forensic analysis of the computers found that they contained more than 600 images of child pornography, including images of prepubescent girls and boys, as well as girls and boys in their early teens, in erotic or sexually graphic and explicit poses.  Some of the pictures were located in multiple places within the hard drive and some materials portrayed sadistic or masochistic conduct or other depictions of violence.

Fox faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison for possession of child pornography, followed by supervised release up to life. As a result of his guilty plea, Fox will also be required to register as a sex offender in the place where he resides, where he is an employee, and where he is a student.  U.S. District Judge Peter J. Messitte has scheduled sentencing for November 18, 2009, at 9:30 a.m.
