Maryland man to serve 5 years for possessing child pornography
A 24-year-old Sharpsburg man who kept a binder with child pornography he pulled from the Internet was sentenced to five years in prison, federal officials in Maryland said.
Matthew Droneburg also was sencted to 25 years of supervised release after he completes his prison term.
Droneburg admitted in U.S. District Court in Baltimore that he bought memberships to child pornography websites, officials said. During a search of his home, a binder was found with some of those images, as well as six videos showing child pornography. Officials said there were hundreds of illegal images, including some depicting violence.
This investigation was part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide effort by the Department of Justice to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse.
