Federal grand jury indicts Sterling man for possession of child porn

A federal grand jury returned an indictment today against a Sterling man for receipt and possession of child pornography, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Anoushiravan Dadgar, 33, of Sterling, used a computer to receive photos and videos of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, according to court records and allegations in the indictment. Some of the videos Dadgar possessed depicted minors who appeared to be less than 10 years old and other prepubescent minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, according to a news release.

Dadagar faces a mandatory minimum of five years in prison and a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison if convicted. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

Announcing the indictment was U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Dana Boente, Special Agent in Charge of U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations Patrick J. Lechleitner Assistant U.S. Attorneys Nathaniel Smith III and Maya D. Song are prosecuting the case.

No second chances for scum like this.  20 years (max available) and then constant monitoring for the rest of his life.  Keep him off the Internet too.
