FBI employee pleads guilty to possessing child porn
An FBI information technology employee pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal district court in Virginia to possessing child pornography, authorities said Thursday.
Samuel I. Kaplan, 64, of Gainesville faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced on Aug. 27, authorities said.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia, he was found to have used the FBI’s computer network to “facilitate sexually explicit communications.”
Investigators found between 10 and 20 images of minors engaged in sexual conduct on his home computer, authorities said.
Kaplan was employed as an IT program manager at an FBI facility in Chantilly, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
