Former Seasonal Sentenced To Prison For Child Pornography

Mojave National Preserve

National Park News

The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation launched an investigation the January before last when a member of Theodore Martin’s family found child pornography on their computer. The SBI investigation revealed that Martin had previously owned the computer, but that his whereabouts were now unknown. With assistance from NPS special agents, Mojave NP ranger and US Postal Service inspectors, they found Martin working as a seasonal maintenance employee at Mojave NP. During an interview with an NPS agent and a San Bernadino County detective in July of that year, Martin admitted to downloading and possessing child pornography in his RV. He was arrested and extradited to North Carolina. After obtaining a search warrant, agents from the NPS Investigation Services Branch conducted a forensic examination of Martin's digital media. The examination revealed over 120,000 images and 600 movies of suspected child pornography. Approximately 80 GB of data were submitted to the National Center for Missing or Exploited Children. Two weeks ago, Martin pled guilty in North Carolina superior court to second degree possession of child pornography. He was sentenced to serve 42 to 51 months in the North Carolina Department of Corrections.
