Guilty plea in child porn case


August 06, 2008|By STAFF REPORT

A 21-year-old Crofton man pleaded guilty yesterday to possessing more than 600 images of child pornography on his home computer, according to the Maryland U.S. attorney's office.

Prosecutors said that James Spencer Godboldte was arrested after an undercover law enforcement officer in Tampa, Fla., downloaded two images of child pornography from a computer address that belonged to the suspect June 30, 2006.

Federal agents searched Godboldte's house in Anne Arundel County on Sept. 8, 2006, and said they found hundreds of images of children between 7 and 14 years old stored on his computer. Prosecutors said the suspect faces a maximum 10 years in federal prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 18.
