Caleb Andrew Bailey, 31, of Waldorf, pleaded guilty in federal court Monday, May 15, 2017, to illegal possession of unregistered machine guns, unregistered short-barreled rifles, unregistered destructive devices, and possession of child pornography charges.

At the time of his arrest, Caleb Andrew Bailey was a Maryland Delegate, selected by Donald Trump’s presidential campaign for the Republican National Convention.

The guilty plea was announced by Acting United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Stephen M. Schenning; Special Agent in Charge Daniel L. Board Jr. of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives – Baltimore Field Division; Special Agent in Charge Andre R. Watson of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI); Postal Inspector in Charge Robert B. Wemyss of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service – Washington Division; and Charles County Sheriff Troy Berry.

According to the plea agreement, on May 5, 2016, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (“ATF”) Special Agents executed federal search warrants at adjoining properties in Waldorf, Maryland associated with the Defendant. At the Defendant’s residence, law enforcement located, among other items, an underground bunker containing machine guns, machine gun manufacturing parts and devices, firearms, explosives, unregistered short-barreled rifles and destructive devices; covert recording devices; and child pornography on electronic devices seized inside and outside the residence, including one electronic device located within the underground bunker and other items moved from the Defendant’s bedroom at his residence and hidden in the woods by a minor victim at the direction of Bailey.  At his parents’ residence, in the Defendant’s bedroom, law enforcement recovered an electronic device that contained internet searches indicative of child pornography.

During the execution of the search warrant on May 5, 2016, a 17-year-old minor was present at Bailey’s residence.  The minor admitted that Bailey instructed the minor to remove a Panasonic Toughbook laptop, a Sony camera, and a Seagate external hard drive from Bailey’s residence and cover them with leaves by a footbridge in the woods behind the residence.  Law enforcement recovered these items.

On May 17, 2016, the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations conducted a forensic analysis of Bailey’s electronic devices.  The forensic analysis revealed that Bailey used hidden cameras to surreptitiously record videos of the victims in the bathroom of Bailey’s recreational vehicle, with the focus of those videos on the victims’ genitals. Bailey also physically transported the hidden cameras outside of Maryland to various hotels at which he stayed with the victims while competing in ATV races. In total, Bailey recorded over 100 videos capturing the genitals of the victims between March 2014 and January 2016.  Bailey also created screen captures of portions of some of the videos that Bailey recorded of the victims.  The screen captures depict the victims nude with their genitals exposed.  Bailey saved these videos and video screen captures on the Seagate hard drive recovered during the execution of the search warrant at the Defendant’s residence on May 5, 2016. The forensic analysis also revealed that Bailey possessed other images and videos of child pornography on various electronic devices, including a hard drive located within his bunker, that do not appear to have been produced by him, including depictions of prepubescent minors and depictions of sadistic or masochistic conduct involving minors (bondage). Bailey’s collection of child pornography included more than 280 images and 54 videos depicting children engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

As part of his plea agreement, Bailey 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).

Bailey and the government have agreed that if the Court accepts the plea agreement Bailey will be sentenced to between 120 and 324 months in prison. 

U.S. District Judge Paul W. Grimm has scheduled sentencing for November 30, 2017 at 9:00 a.m.

Acting United States Attorney Stephen M. Schenning commended ATF Baltimore Field Division, HSI Baltimore, U.S. Postal Inspection Service – Washington Division and Charles County Sheriff’s Office for their work in the investigation.  Mr. Schenning thanked Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jennifer R. Sykes, Kristi N. O’Malley, and Thomas P. Windom, who are prosecuting the case.

    Maybe they can use those automatic weapons to remove his manhood. Once they are done emptying a clip into each testicle molesting children will be the last thing on his mind. This sick turd can rot in prison for the rest of his miserable life and it still wouldn’t be enough of a punishment.

      There are plenty of third world countries that will provide you the twisted fantasies you seek. We don’t do that here in the civilized world.

    He sure fits the description of the usual SOMD pervert.

      What profile do you fit? Racist remarks like yours can’t just go one way so if you want to profile you have no right to complain when you see others profile on here. Maybe you and all the other racists can start hating the criminal and not the entire race they were born into. Or you can continue to blame all your problems on the other race (white, black, Latino, etc…) and live a miserable sheltered life.

    • Delonte on May 16, 2017 at 12:22 pm

      Right! The only variable would be his race and nationality. Crazyazz perverts are very diverse in this country, a sad fact. Hang’em all, let God sort them out. Yep, I said God.

    • cheywolf on May 16, 2017 at 1:57 pm

      Well I guess that includes you too, Big Dookie since you know your from SOMD and a pervert.

    Nice smear by our liberal MD majority, “…selected by Donald Trump’s presidential campaign for the Republican National Convention.” Like the DNC has NEVER selected someone that turned out to be charged with a crime, (Hillary?) Is there ANY media that fails to launch attacks on our president?

    • Sounds about right on May 17, 2017 at 7:24 am

      Was thinking the same thing. I’m not a Trump or Hillary supporter, but I did think it was pretty sad to pull Trump into this. If the dude worked at McDonald’s when he was 17, should we identify that ass well? And make sure the world knows that McDonalds hires perves?

  4. Rip Storm on May 16, 2017 at 10:16 am

    This guy is very confused. He had the makings of a democratic strategist for Hillary Clinton, but tries to identify as Republican. He is obviously Transpolitical, or just confused. Probably shared emails with Weiner and Huma. Sicko!

    • Sounds about right on May 17, 2017 at 7:26 am

      It really doesn’t matter what he is Rip Storm, it matters only how he identifies himself. If he identifies himself as not a pedophile, I think we need to let him go, right liberals…

  5. anonymous on May 16, 2017 at 10:57 am

    I honestly can’t believe this sick freaks are allowed options for plea agreements…

  6. RR on May 16, 2017 at 12:52 pm

    I know if tRUMP knew that he was such a fine upstanding citizen like himself he would have asked him to be his VP rather than just a Maryland Delegate at the RNC.

    • Sounds about right on May 17, 2017 at 7:38 am

      How is that Anthony Weiner investigation going? Since they found all of those “missing” Clinton emails on his computer (emails he never should have had in the first place), while they were gathering information about his “sexting” with underage girls. Weird how liberals always “forget” about that.

      • RR on May 18, 2017 at 6:55 am

        Weiner is not the ‘so called’ president.

        • Bob Lob Law on May 18, 2017 at 10:09 am

          His wife sure was involved with the woman liberals wanted to be president though, huh?

          • Anonymous on May 19, 2017 at 7:18 am

            What’s Weiner’s wife got to do with this guy being qualified to be a delegate at the RNC?

          • Anonymous on May 19, 2017 at 7:23 am

            What’s that got to do with this guy being qualified to be a delegate at the RNC. I’m just saying he fits in well with the crowd the ‘so called (soon not to be) president’ associates with.

          • RR on May 19, 2017 at 7:26 am

            There is one thing tRUMP supporters can never be accused of being…intelligent.

          • Bob Lob Law on May 19, 2017 at 1:42 pm

            Drumpf will be impeached any day now!!1! LOL Liberals are too funny.

  7. jill on May 16, 2017 at 1:42 pm

    Typical Trump supporter This Nation will be Great again once Trump gets out of the white house, Us Democrat’s of Maryland House are fighting and we will not stop fighting until Trump and all His corrupt perverts get out of office.

    • Little Dookie on May 17, 2017 at 1:06 am

      Sorry Jill, Trumps our President. Sorry you’re still so butt hurt about the election results. Typical Trump supporter…. You haven’t a clue what or who a typical Trump supporter does, looks like or where they live. Hell, they might even be your neighbor, or better yet a teacher who’s teaching your kid to succeed. So when you say typical Trump supporter, you really haven’t a clue. Typical liberal!

    • Big Dookie on May 17, 2017 at 4:39 am

      Jill, you’re a typical Trump hater! F’ off!!

    • Sounds about right on May 17, 2017 at 7:31 am

      Not to defend Trump, cuz frankly I think Trump is a putz, but it is beyond laughable for you to use the term “corrupt” with regard to Trump while you blather on about being a Democrat. You do realize Hillary Clinton’s “corruption” should have her in jail right? And she got a free pass from Comey, you remember, back when liberals didn’t like Comey. He didn’t want, at the time, the person he expected to become our President Elect, to be facing those charges, so he dropped the case. Speaking of perverts, when is Hillary’s BFF Huma’s husband, Carlos Danger, I mean Anthony Weiner, gonna face his charges for sending pics of his c*ck to a 15 year old girl?

    • Chocks on May 17, 2017 at 9:24 am

      Ha! Fighting? You mean whining and having sit down strikes? Yea, I would really county on you and other Dumbocrats to fight for anything, especially our freedoms Just STFU and keep reading your HRC propaganda. Idiot!

      Time to face facts sweetie and get over it already.

  8. JNC on May 17, 2017 at 9:41 am

    Yet another situation where the comment page goes sideways. The guy is charged with some VERY SERIOUS crimes, yet the political commentary takes center stage. SMH.

    • Buck Wyld on May 17, 2017 at 8:12 pm

      You seem to be upset over the dialogue, I recommend you try another comments page. You can’t handle the comments, so go away!

      • JNC on May 18, 2017 at 9:52 am

        Upset? Nah…just making an observation. BTW, thanks for proving my point. Yet another post from someone sidetracked like a toddler towards a shiny object.

        I’ll be moving on now… You can stay if you’d like.

      Ding, ding, ding. We have a winner. Kudos to you.
