BALTIMORE (WJZ)—A Parkville man who has admitted to taking hundreds of videos of underage girls at swim meets has pleaded guilty to child porn charges.
Authorities say back on November 17, 2015, Baltimore County Police searched 53-year-old Ruben Uy Lim’s home and recovered electronic devices, including a hard drive containing videos of prepubescent girls engaged in sexual acts, which had been received over the internet.
Investigators also recovered six video cameras and computer discs which contained hundreds of homemade videos dating back to 2004, which were taken at swim meets, on beaches and at water parks. Lim took the videos using a filter that attached to the camera’s lens and allowed the camera to see through certain fabrics, including bathing suits.
Authorities say Lim admitted that he traveled to swim meets around the country for the sole purpose of recording children using the special camera lens, which Lim referred to as the “X-Ray lens.”
On August 30, 2016 Lim pleaded guilty to the charges against him.
He faces at least 10 years behind bars followed by 20 years of supervised release.
Kim’s sentencing is scheduled for December 9, 2016 at 9:30 a.m.
