Fairfax Man Gets 5 Years for Child Porn

WASHINGTON — A Fairfax, Virginia, man who pleaded guilty in January to federal charges of receiving child pornography was sentenced to five years in prison Friday.

Authorities were led to Roger Wheaton Webb, 53, after identifying an IP address that was accessing child porn from a Fairfax business in February – March 2015. A search of that business and review of several electronic devices, they said, revealed that two devices contained approximately 5,500 image files and 362 video files of child pornography.

Webb later admitted that he had used the business’ computer to access, receive and download child pornography and that he had transferred it to a flash drive.

His case was part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide Justice Department initiative against child exploitation and abuse.
