Leesburg man sentenced for child porn
Pomeroy Staudt Jr.
A Leesburg man was sentenced June 23 to two and a half years in jail after pleading guilty to eight counts of sexually visual material.
Additionally, Edward Pomeroy Staudt Jr., 62, received 18 and a half years of suspended time and will be on probation for 10 years following his release.
Staudt was arrested in October 2013 after Virginia State Police discovered someone using peer to peer networking to share child pornography. Special agents linked the IP address to a home in Leesburg, prompting the execution of a search warrant. Police found computers, hard drives, CDs and VHS tapes containing 21,000 child pornography pictures and 913 child pornography videos.
On March 10, Staudt pleaded guilty to eight counts of sexually explicit visual material.
In addition to his prison sentence, Judge Stephen E. Sincavage also ordered that Staudt is prohibited with unsupervised contact with minors, must be more than 100 feet from schools at all times and must complete a sex offender treatment program. Staudt will have to register as a sex offender.
