BALTIMORE (AP) — An attorney from Baltimore has been sentenced to two years in prison for possession of child pornography.

The sentence for Patrick Joseph Redd, 33, was announced on Wednesday by the FBI, prosecutors and Maryland State Police. According to a plea agreement, the FBI searched Redd’s home in Baltimore and seized his computer. An examination of the computed uncovered 11 images documenting the sexual abuse of children, including images depicting children under the age of 12.

Once Redd is out of prison, he must serve 13 months of home detention as part of 10 years of supervised release. A judge has also ordered Redd to register as a sex offender once he is released.
