HUNTINGTOWN, Md. — A federal grand jury has indicted 54-year-old Anthony Michael Mileo, an officer with the Maryland National Capital Park Police Department on the federal charge of transportation of child pornography.

According to the indictment, in May 2019, Mileo transported child pornography by computer. He previously faced related charges in Calvert County, but those charges were dismissed in favor of the prosecution.

If convicted, Mileo faces a mandatory minimum of five years in federal prison and a maximum sentence for 20 years.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by indictment is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceedings.
