A Laurel man was sentenced to 20 years in prison Monday on charges of producing child pornography, prosecutors said.
Frank Alan Klukosky, 43, received the sentence from Chief U.S. District Judge Deborah K. Chasanow in Greenbelt. Klukosky also faces lifetime supervised release and must register as a sex offender.
According to Klukosky's plea agreement, in June 2012, a federal probation officer found pornographic images and videos depicting children on the cell phone of a registered sex offender who had been in contact with Klukosky.
"Further investigation revealed that on June 24, 2012 Klukosky drove to the registered sex offender’s home in Laurel with an SD card that contained at least 120 images and six videos of child pornography," prosecutors said in a statement. "Klukosky then helped the registered sex offender load those images and videos onto his computer and cell phone."
When FBI agents searched Klukosky's home in October, they allegedly found a hard drive containing 2,000 images and 16 videos of child pornography, "including 11 videos depicting a 13 year old girl in a bathroom."
Investigators also found "key fob cameras" apparently used to capture such videos on at least 10 occasions. Klukosky was recorded using the camera in at least one of the films, prosecutors said.
Klukosky plead guilty to child pornography charges in March.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kristi O’Malley and overseen by Rod J. Rosenstein, U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland. The investigation included members of the FBI, the Laurel Police Department, the Howard County Police Department, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of the Inspector General.
