A Pennsylvania man was arrested after he allegedly recorded underage boys in a Maryland public bathroom without their knowledge.
Police say Brian Matthew Williams, 28, of West Chester, used his cell phone camera to record two young boys urinating in the restroom. He also allegedly captured images of one of the boys’ exposed genitalia.
“The indictment alleges that the defendant egregiously violated the privacy of young boys by secretly recording them in public restrooms, a crime that gives every parent nightmares,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. “I am grateful to the vigilant citizen who noticed the unusual behavior and immediately called 9-1-1, and to the police and prosecutors who conducted an urgent investigation.”
Williams was arrested at his home Wednesday night. He was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of producing and possessing child pornography. He faces a minimum mandatory sentence of 15 years in prison and a maximum of 30 years in prison followed by a lifetime of supervised release.
