BALTIMORE (AP/WBOC)- A 35-year-old Maryland man who is a former employee of the U.S. Navy has pleaded guilty to child pornography offenses.

Federal prosecutors say Spencer E. Steckman pleaded guilty on Tuesday and will be sentenced in November for the production, transportation and possession of child pornography.

The former resident of Silver Spring had been charged last year after being detained by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service while working for the U.S. Navy in Japan.

While living in Maryland, prosecutors say, Steckman enticed a 13-year-old boy to take sexually explicit photos of himself in exchange for money or PlayStation videogame redemption codes. Prosecutors say that also while living in Maryland, Steckman enticed another 13-year-old boy to take photographs or videos of himself engaging in sexually explicit conduct and then send them to Steckman in exchange for an iPhone.  

Investigators say they later found eight other victims whom Steckman had enticed to produce child pornography, ranging in age from 12 to 17, and dating back to the years 2008 to 2010, when Steckman was residing in San Diego, Calif.

Steckman has remained in custody since being detained by the NCIS in March 2018.
