Ex-contractor downloads child porn
A former NASA contractor admitted in federal court that he used his office computer to download and view child pornography, federal officials said.
Cecil M. Graham, 67, of Laurel, pleaded guilty Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt to possession of child pornography, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Maryland. He had worked as a contractor for NASA, most recently as a Hubble Space Telescope Planning and Scheduling Manager.
Authorities said a search of Graham's office computer showed he had been downloading child pornography since at least August 2000. Agents, who also searched Graham's home, recovered about 21 pages of printed images of girls engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
Graham faces a maximum of 10 years in prison, authorities said. He is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 29.
