D.C. Man Pleads Guilty to Felony Charge In Child Exploitation Case

            WASHINGTON – Raymond Glover, 42, of Washington, D.C., pleaded guilty today to one count of receipt of child pornography, announced United States Attorney Matthew Graves and Acting Special Agent in Charge Derek W. Gordon, of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). A sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 21, 2023.

            According to court documents, on or about September 21, 2021, HSI agents searched Glover’s home. During the search, a child pornography video was playing, in plain sight, on Glover’s laptop in the living room via an application that allowed sharing of the video screen. Agents observed adult men, on another screen, who appeared to be watching the video via the sharing application. Glover stated that some of the child pornography videos posted in the application chat groups depicted children as young as 5 or 6 years of age. Glover stated individuals also posted links to cloud storage sites which allowed him to gain access to child pornography. During the search warrant execution, agents seized 13 electronic devices, to include two phones, the laptop, and a number of others. Glover’s devices contained over 60 videos and 60 images that meet the federal definition of child pornography. These videos and images were downloaded between the dates of September 27, 2019 and September 21, 2021.

            The charge of receiving child pornography carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison with a maximum possible sentence of 20 years in prison, plus mandatory restitution, a period of supervised release, and a possible fine. The court will determine the appropriate sentence after considering the relevant factors including the advisory Sentencing Guidelines.

            This case is being investigated by the Washington, D.C. office of Homeland Security Investigations.  It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Amy Larson and Jocelyn Bond with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia with assistance provided by the paralegal Alexis Spencer-Anderson.
