Ex-Hawaii resident pleads guilty to child porn
A former Hawai’i resident today pleaded guilty in Maryland to federal charges of possessing child pornography and could be sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Gregory D. Corbitt, 39, of Glen Burnie, Md., was found in possession of more than 600 images of child pornography in 2006 on Oct. 27 and Nov. 29 while residing at Hickam Air Force Base where his wife was stationed. The images were stored on a laptop computer owned by his wife and compact discs stored at the Hickam home.
Corbitt admitted to Air Force investigators the pornographic images on the computer belonged to him and told agents where to find the additional discs, according to a news release issued by the U.S. attorney’s office in Hawai’i today.
The case against Corbitt was transferred to the Maryland district because he moved there before being indicted here.
Corbitt will be sentenced Feb. 22, 2008.
