Boys in sex pictures sought as state police investigate further

July 18, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Two months after a Severna Park man was sentenced on a federal conviction of possessing child pornography, state police are trying to identify the boys appearing in dozens of explicit photographs that served as evidence to pursue the possibility of further charges.

"We're looking to see if the individuals involved were sexually abused," said Tfc. Art Schroeder of the state police Computer Crimes Unit.

The pictures were found in an album possessed by 61-year-old Robb Walker Freeman, a convicted child molester, in a search of his home in the 600 block of Old County Road. He was arrested in September and sentenced in May to six years in prison.

Freeman had been convicted in 1984 of molesting a young boy, prosecutors said at sentencing.

Police said the album held more than 50 instant photographs of white boys ages 7 to 13 involved in sexual acts that appeared to have been taken during the 1970s and 1980s in Ocean City and in Freeman's residence.

Anyone with information is asked to call Schroeder at 410-290-1620, or the U.S. Customs Service at 410-962-2914.

All information will remain strictly confidential, police said.
