GREENBELT, Md. (AP) - A Lusby man has pleaded guilty to possession and distribution of child pornography.

Forty-seven-year-old Shawn Crawford entered the plea Monday. He faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years in prison at sentencing on May 14. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.

According to his plea agreement, Crawford distributed pictures and videos of child pornography. Prosecutors say a search warrant was executed on his home after an FBI investigation and thousands of images and videos depicting child pornography were found on computers and digital medical that were seized.
