Twice Convicted Sex Offender Gets 15 Years

GREENBELT, Md. (AP) — A man who was on probation for a sex offense has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for receiving child pornography.

Fifty-year-old Larry Poole of Laurel was sentenced in federal court in Greenbelt on Tuesday.

According to his plea agreement, authorities learned that Poole had been sending texts claiming he was molesting a child. Laurel police could not confirm the claims, but notified Poole’s probation officer, who visited Poole.

Prosecutors say the probation officer discovered videos and images of child pornography on Poole’s cell phone.
