BALTIMORE- A 42-year-old Worcester County man has pleaded guilty to producing and possessing child porn. 

Laiton Blake Witkowski, of Stockton, entered the plea Monday in federal court in Baltimore. He faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years and a maximum of 30 years in prison for production of child pornography; and a maximum of 20 years in prison for possession of child pornography. Sentencing is set for Dec. 19.

According to his plea agreement, on Oct. 8, 2013, Witkowski used a file sharing network that enabled a law enforcement officer to download from Witkowski’s computer.  After further investigation, a search warrant was executed at his home on Feb. 6, 2014. Court documents show that computers, hard drives, other electronic devices and approximately 455 CDs and DVDs were seized, all containing, or were used to produce and store, child pornography.  A computer, eMachine and electronic notebook alone contained 8,000 images and 100 videos of child pornography, prosecutors said.  Authorities said the CDs and DVDs also contained thousands of images and videos of child pornography, including images and videos involving prepubescent minors, and depicting sadism, masochism and other violence.
 
Further analysis revealed that Witkowski had produced images and videos of child pornography of two girls in August to September of 2009, prosecutors said. The girls were approximately 10- and 12-years-old at the time, the investigation revealed. Investigators noted that in some images one victim appears to be sleeping, and in other images, the other victim is using the bathroom, or sitting at a computer with Witkowski standing behind her in sexually explicit poses.
 
As part of his plea agreement, Witkowski must register as a sex offender in the place where he resides, where he is an employee, and where he is a student, under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA).

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
