Galesville Man Pleads Guilty to Charges Related to Possession of Child Pornography, Avoids Jail Time, Receives Five Year Suspended Sentence

A Galesville man will not serve any jail time after pleading guilty to two misdemeanor possession of child pornography charges in the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court.

Edward Frederick Burrucker Jr., 68, of Lothian Maryland, received a 5-year suspended sentence and was ordered to five years of supervised probation, according to court records.

In February of 2019, investigators from the Maryland State Police – Central South Region began an online investigation involving the possession of child pornography. Further investigation led to the identification of the suspect and his residence in the 900 block of Galesville Road in Galesville.

On March 13, 2019, the Maryland State Police served a search warrant at the identified residence. During the service of the warrant, a preliminary forensic review of Burrucker’s electronic devices revealed files of evidentiary value. The devices were seized and subsequently analyzed via a full forensic download by Homeland Security Investigations. Once the forensic download was completed, investigators reviewed the evidence and learned of numerous files of evidentiary value.

A criminal summons was issued for Burrucker. Burrucker’s attorney accepted the criminal summons on his behalf in September, 2019.
