Jail for former FBI worker from Va.

Washington Post Editors

A 65-year-old former FBI employee from Prince William County was sentenced to nearly four years in prison Friday for possessing child pornography.

Samuel I. Kaplan, of Gainesville, who pleaded guilty June 2 in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, was sentenced to 46 months behind bars.

Kaplan was an information technology program manager at an FBI facility in Chantilly when authorities discovered that he had used the FBI's computer network to "facilitate sexually explict communications," the Justice Department said.

Investigators said they later found 10 to 20 images on Kaplan's home computer showing juveniles involved in sex acts.

The investigation was part of the Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide law enforcement initiative to combat child sexual exploitation, authorities said.

"I bet he was the smartest in his class" although he seems to be hiding that pretty well...
What a putz! Should be riding off into the retirement sunset but instead is riding off as a convicted felon...

He brought negative publicity upon the FBI. He does not represent the thousands of dedeicated, law abiding FBI employees.
