A federal grand jury indicted a 49-year-old man for producing and possessing child pornography since 2002. 

According to indictment documents, Glen Ranger persuaded, enticed, and coerced a young boy to engage in sexual activity in order to produce videos and images from 2002 to 2007. Ranger later accessed, viewed, stored, and had a hard drive that contained visually explicit images of minors engaging in sexual activity, from 2014 to 2018.

Ranger faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in prison and a maximum of 30 years in prison, followed by up to a lifetime of supervised release, for each of five counts of production of child pornography; and a maximum of 20 years in prison for each of seven counts of possession of child pornography. 

Ranger is expected to have an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge A. David Copperthite on June 28, 2018, in U.S. District Court in Baltimore. 

He is currently detained on related state charges.
