BALTIMORE- Federal prosecutors say a 31-year-old Federalsburg man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison after being convicted of producing child pornography.

After serving his sentence, Scott William Zalewski will be required to register as a sex offender.

According to the plea agreement, on a least three occasions from July through August 2011, Zalewski took sexually explicit photographs of a female under 12 years of age. Police said several photographs documented his sexual abuse of the girl and he then emailed another person.

Court documents show that Zalewski's girlfriend gave police photographs that showed sexual explicit images of the victim, which she said she found in Zalewski's email account.

Zalewski was arrested on Jan. 2, 2013. Investigators say a search warrant was then executed on Zalewski's email, which showed digital copies of sexually explicit pictures of the victim were sent to another individual.

Prosecutors said that more than a dozen emails were seized, dating from July and August 2011, which showed Zalewski had exchanged explicit photos with others.

Investigators recovered a hard drive from his home, along with a laptop which Zalewski's ex-girlfriend gave to police. The hard drive contained 45 images of child pornography, court records show. 

Prosecutors said text messages recovered from Zalewski's cellphone showed talks of child pornography with others. Some text messages had image attachments but they were deleted and police were not able to recover them.

Zalewski previously pleaded guilty in Caroline County Circuit Court to a second-degree sex offense and to second-degree rape and was sentenced to a total of 40 years in prison on those charges. His state and federal sentences will be served concurrently.
