‘HORRENDOUS’ Baltimore Maryland Man Indicted Producing Child Porn

BALTIMORE, MD. – Calvin Henry Sampson, III, age 21, of Baltimore, Maryland, has been charged with four counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. 

According to the indictment, between July 26, 2019 and February 26, 2020, Sampson exploited two minor prepubescent female victims in order to produce images and videos documenting the sexual abuse of those victims. The indictment further alleges that from March 3, 2020, through April 7, 2020, Sampson maintained an Internet-based account that contained visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, including images of the two minor victims.

If convicted, Sampson faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in federal prison and a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison for each of the four counts of production of child pornography.  Sampson also faces a maximum of 20 years in federal prison for possession of child pornography. 

Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.  Sampson is expected to have an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, although no date has been set for the hearing.  Sampson is currently detained on unrelated state charges.
