Navy Reservist Charged with Child Porn in Virginia

May 3, 2010

Federal prosecutors say a Navy reservist arrested charges of child porn could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says more than 3,000 child porn images were found on 37-year-old Scottie Lee Martinez's personal computer in March after it was seized during an investigation.

In addition, a news release said that more than 600 of the images showed Martinez engaging in sexual conduct with a minor. The investigation emerged after a co-worker became suspicious of Martinez's use of an online shared network while they were deployed to Qatar.

Martinez, who lives in Dumfries, made his initial appearance in court in Norfolk on Friday. The case is being investigated by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.
