Man sentenced to 20 years for producing child porn

A Calvert County man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for inappropriately touching a minor and taking pictures of his actions while she slept.
 
Twenty-four-year-old David Wayne Sweet Jr. of St. Leonard was also ordered to register as a sex offender at sentencing Monday in federal court in Greenbelt.
 
According to his plea agreement, on Sept. 19, Calvert County Sheriff's deputies executed a search warrant on Sweet's home as part of an investigation into alleged drug crimes. Prosecutors say Sweet's cell phone was seized and investigators recovered 24 sexually explicit images of a prepubescent girl that Sweet had deleted.
 
On April 16, 2014, Sweet pleaded guilty to a second degree sex offense in Calvert County Circuit Court. His sentencing is set for July 11.
