SEVERN, MD - A Severn man is heading to prison for buying explicit videos from an overseas child pornography ring, prosecutors announced this week.

The U.S. Department of Justice said Carey Lee Sackmann, 62, will spend 10 years in federal prison followed by seven years on probation. Sackmann must also pay $50,000 in restitution to be split between the victims and register as a sex offender where he lives, works and studies.

A press release said Sackmann, starting no later than 2015, video called facilitators in the Philippines and Madagascar who sexually exploited minors in exchange for money. 

Prosecutors alleged that Sackmann paid facilitators to produce sexually explicit videos of minors.

The DOJ said Sackmann also paid to see live streams of minors performing sexual acts with adults, other children or alone.

The release said Sackmann took screenshots of the live streams on multiple occasions.

FBI agents on Sept. 24, 2020 executed a search warrant on Sackmann's home and seized several electronic devices, prosecutors said.

The DOJ said forensic examinations on the devices revealed multiple visits to live stream pornography websites and online money transfer services.

Sackmann's devices had about 15 images and 1 video of suspected child pornography on them, the release said. 

Prosecutors said Sackmann's phone and other accounts also had many chats about child pornography production.

Sackmann pleaded guilty to coercion and enticement of a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity, the DOJ said.

The release said U.S. District Judge Deborah L. Boardman sentenced Sackmann on Monday.
