Baltimore Man Who Pleaded Guilty to Child Porn Faced Similar Charges in Germantown

Terrance Dion Robinson, 39, pleaded guilty to eight counts of sexually exploiting minors. Robinson had prior convictions in Montgomery County for crimes involving the sexual abuse of children.

GERMANTOWN—A Baltimore man who recently pleaded guilty to producing child porn faced similar charges while living in Germantown during the 1990s, according to court records.

Terrance Dion Robinson, 39, pleaded guilty Thursday to eight counts of sexually exploiting minors to produce child pornography, the U.S. attorneys' office said.

According to the plea agreement, a 2010 Baltimore police search of his home turned up images and videos that Robinson produced of preteens engaged in sexually explicit conduct.  Digital media seized from Robinson’s home also contained more than 600 images of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, including at least four videos downloaded from the Internet.

Court records show Robinson had prior convictions in Montgomery County for crimes involving the sexual abuse of children.

Montgomery County Circuit Court records show a Germantown address listed for Robinson for a 1996 sex offense conviction, which according to the federal plea, was for committing sexual acts with boys ages 4, 5 and 14 during the summer of 1993.

Robinson was sentenced to 10 years incarceration, with all but six years suspended.

That sentence would run concurrently with a 1995 conviction, when a Montgomery County Circuit Court judge sentenced Robinson to 40 years incarceration—with all but four years suspended and five years probation—for committing sex acts with a 17-year-old female and a 14-year-old male in 1994, according to the federal plea agreement.

A Baltimore address was listed for the 1995 conviction, Montgomery County Circuit Court records show.

According to federal attorneys, Robinson faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 35 years in prison and a maximum of life in prison for each of the eight counts of production of child pornography, followed by up to lifetime supervised release. 

Sentencing was scheduled for March 25, 2013.

A U.S. Attorney spokeswoman told Patch that Robinson was registered as a sex offender in Baltimore City before he was taken into federal custody. The U.S. Attorney's office did not offer an immediate comment on the case.
