Case Brought under Maryland’s Project Safe Childhood

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 28, 2008

Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles, Jr. sentenced Stanley Patrick Demoulin, age 45, of Odenton, Maryland, today to 63 months in prison, followed by lifetime supervised release, for receipt of child pornography, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein. Demoulin will be required to register as a sex offender upon his release, and may not own a computer without prior approval.

According to Demoulin’s plea agreement, from November 13, 2006 through January 17, 2007, Demoulin purchased access to websites advertising child pornography and downloaded images of child pornography to his computer. A search warrant was executed at his home on October 17, 2007. A subsequent forensic examination of his computer and removable media seized during the search revealed over 600 images of child pornography, including images documenting the sexual abuse of prepubescent minors. Demoulin admitted that he received all of his child pornography through the Internet and that he knew that it was illegal to possess child pornography.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as identify and rescue victims.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for its investigation and commended Assistant United States Attorney Bonnie S. Greenberg, who prosecuted the case.
