Ex-bus driver indicted over child porn
A grand jury has indicted a former Prince George’s County school bus driver on charges that he sexually molested a 7-year-old boy and captured the abuse on video, federal authorities said.
Scott Smallwood, 27, of Upper Marlboro, was arrested May 21 after he left a memory card containing videos of himself and the boy on the counter of a 7-Eleven in Clinton, authorities said. A customer found the card and alerted police, who eventually identified Smallwood and the boy.
The boy told Prince George's social service workers that he had "sleepovers" with Smallwood and that the man offered him candy, according to court documents.
According to the indictment, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, Smallwood sexually molested the boy four times between February 4 and February 12. He is charged with seven counts of sexual exploitation of a minor to produce child pornography.
Smallwood could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted. No court appearance has been scheduled.
