Upper Marlboro Man Sentenced To 30 Years In Prison For Sexually Abusing A Child To Produce Child Pornography

October 28, 2014

United States Attorney for the District of MarylandU.S. District Judge Deborah K. Chasanow sentenced Eugene Lewandowski, age 27, of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, today to 30 years in prison followed by lifetime supervised release for sexual exploitation of a minor to produce child pornography and for transportation of child pornography. Judge Chasanow ordered that upon his release from prison, Lewandowski must register as a sex offender in the place where he resides, where he is an employee, and where he is a student, under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA).

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge William Winter of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI); and Colonel Marcus L. Brown, Superintendent of the Maryland State Police.

According to information presented at Lewandowski’s sentencing hearing, Lewandowski took six videos of himself engaged in sexual acts with a sleeping five year old female, as well as additional videos of the child, including sexually explicit videos.

In addition, analysis of Lewandowski’s computers and other digital media revealed at least 14,000 images and videos documenting the sexual abuse of children. Lewandowski admitted using a file sharing program on his computer to distribute some of these images and videos.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein commended the HSI Baltimore and Maryland State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force for their work in the investigation, and thanked Assistant U.S. Attorney Kristi N. O’Malley, who prosecuted the case.

    PLEASE TELL ME WHY THE EDITORS OF THIS SITE IS SO QUICK TO DISPLAY THE MUGSHOTS OF EVERY BEING WHO HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH A CRIMINAL ACT BUT ALMOST NEVER DISPLAY ANY PHOTO OF THESE NON-HUMAN MISCREANTS WHO MOLEST AND RAPE LITTLE CHILDREN….WHY????

    SMNEWSNET
    We always try to get mug shots of “these type” of criminals. The DOJ will not provide booking photos, and we have had to make multiple requests to local law enforcement agencies in the past to get booking photos.

  3. Lets not mistaken female judges on October 29, 2014 at 1:49 pm

    for Lady Justice. Its understandable to have female judges preside in cases where there are pictures of females involved, such as sexual assault cases, that those alleged victims would not want male judges to see. Lady Justice should not be interpreted to mean that male and female judges are equal and interchangeable, only that they have equal authority.

    • you are an idiot on October 30, 2014 at 9:16 am

      Seriously, you think judges should be assigned based on gender or the victim’s choice? It seems as if you are implying that a thirty year federal sentence was too harsh (and yes, that’s a federal sentence meaning 30 years in prison, followed by lifetime probation and sex offender registry). With the number of images, the fact that he not only collected but produced and the type of images called for an maxed out sentence which is what he and most similar offenders receive. As for reviewing the images, the judge might see them, she has every right, but in the many cases I worked, I never saw a judge look at images. Instead they relied on the per-sentence report to define the count and type of images. Finally for anyone that thinks these images are your run of the mill nude shots of your kid in the bathtub, they are not. Get a video of the vilest adult stuff you can find and then image a little boy or girl is being filmed. That will get you close, but not quite there. Ive worked law enforcement for 21 years, eight of it over several assignments in child porn. There is a burn out rate that cannot be fathomed.
