Former instructor jailed for child porn

A former gymnastics instructor who amassed a huge child pornography collection was sentenced Wednesday to 6½ years in prison.

Patrick D. Bogan, 41, taught for 11 years at Baltimore County Gymnastics near White Marsh, where he worked with girls between 5 and 15 years old. Federal prosecutors have found no evidence that Bogan molested any of the girls.

U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein said the case against Bogan was significant because of the sheer volume of child pornography in his possession — hundreds of sexually explicit images of children on his computer and hundreds of pornographic videotapes of minors.

Bogan pleaded guilty in May to one count of receipt of child pornography.

He will be on supervised probation for 10 years after his release and must register as a sex offender.

He was also barred from seeking employment that puts him in regular contact with children under 18.
