Man Arrested on Child Porn Charges in Undercover Sting at Crofton Library

November 17, 2011

Maryland State Police arrested a 24-year-old man during a sting at a public library in Crofton and charged him with distributing child pornography over the Internet.

Robert J. Hudson 2nd, of the 1000 block of Christmas Lane in Gambrills, faces up to 20 years in prison if he is convicted.

Police said an undercover trooper chatted with the suspect on a file sharing network and chatted with the suspect about child pornography. “The suspect agreed to meet with the undercover trooper and exchange files of child pornography,” state police said in a statement.

On Wednesday, police said Hudson met with the undercover trooper at the library and arrested him. Police said they also searched the man’s house and confiscated his computer. The suspect was being held at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center onĀ  $275,000 bond.

The case was investigated by the Maryland Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force set up to protect children from computer-facilitated sexual exploitation.
