Rockville Man Gets 135 Months for Child Pornography

A Rockville man, previously convicted of possessing child pornography 17 years ago, is going to prison for 135 months for new child pornography charges, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Timothy Lawrence Day, 59, must pay a $20,000 fine and a $5,000 special assessment, serve 10 years of supervised release, and register as a sex offender wherever he lives after prison, the statement said. The sentence was handed down by U.S. District Judge Paula Xinis.

Day pleaded guilty to purchasing and downloading computer files on May 2, 2017, knowing that the files contained images of sexual abuse of minors, including prepubescent children, the statement said.

The files were discovered after law enforcement officers executed search warrants at Day’s home on Nov. 7 and Nov. 19, 2018, the statement said. Officers seized multiple electronic devices, including a desktop computer and two thumb drives.

A forensic analysis of the devices revealed at least 55 images depicting prepubescent children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, the statement said.

A search warrant executed on Day’s personal e-mail address revealed that on or about December 29, 2017, Day purchased another file that contained at least seven videos, plus at least 105 images depicting prepubescent children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, the statement said.

In all, Day received and possessed more than 600 images of child pornography.

Day was previously convicted for possession of child pornography in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in 2002.
