A 47-year-old Maryland man was sentenced to six years in prison for possession and distribution of child pornography.

Shawn Fred Crawford, of Lusby, in July 2012 distributed six images and 16 videos depicting children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, according to his plea agreement filed in federal court in Greenbelt.

FBI agents executed a search warrant at Crawford's home in September and seized computers and other digital media containing about 4,700 images and 1,100 videos of child pornography, including of children under the age of 12.
