Former Adams County Man Sentenced For Receipt And Possession Of Child Pornography

HARRISBURG - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that a former Adams County man was sentenced today to 87 months’ imprisonment by United States District Court Judge Sylvia H. Rambo in Harrisburg for receipt of child pornography.

According to United States Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, Earl Greg Walker, age 53, pled guilty on June 13, 2016, to receiving child pornography at his home in Adams County between 2011-2012. 

An examination of Walker’s computer revealed over 1,000 Skype chat messages with minor Russian females and three minor females between the ages of 13-15 years old in the United States.  Also recovered from Walker’s computer were numerous video files containing minor females engaged in sexual acts and various stages of undress, to include full nudity. 

“There is no greater satisfaction than an investigation culminating in a child predator facing justice.  Minors here and abroad are safer with the defendant in custody,” said Brian A. Michael, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigation Philadelphia.

This case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and the Pennsylvania State Police and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daryl F. Bloom.  

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
