A Maryland man pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court for the District on Wednesday to a count of distribution of child pornography that occurred last year while he was on active duty with the U.S. Army Reserve in Kuwait and Iraq.

Christopher Medovich, 28, of Hancock, Md., faces a mandatory-minimum sentence of five years in prison, a maximum sentence of 20 years, and a fine of up to $250,000 when he is sentenced on July 19.

Authorities say that on Aug. 18, a Metropolitan Police officer operating undercover with the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force communicated with Medovich by email and instant messenger. Over the next several days, Medovich sent the investigator eight images of child pornography.

Authorities obtained an arrest warrant for the defendant and a search warrant for his residence in Hancock. On Dec. 15, Medovich was arrested. A forensic analysis of computer equipment inside his residence confirmed that he also possessed 64 images of child pornography.
