BALTIMORE (AP) — The U.S. Attorney’s office says a Baltimore attorney has been sentenced to five years in prison for distribution of child pornography.
David Bart Goldstein, 55, was also sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court to five years of supervised release and ordered to register as a sex offender.
Prosecutors say that according to Goldstein’s plea agreement, an undercover FBI agent in Newark, N.J. saw Goldstein was logged on to a publicly available file-sharing program and was sharing nearly 1,500 files. The agent downloaded 22 images and six videos from Goldstein’s shared files, all of which contained minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.
Prosecutors say the prosecution was conducted as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative against child sexual exploitation.
