Frank Alan Klukosky, of North Laurel, pleaded guilty March 4 to producing child pornography, U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod Rosenstein announced. Investigations revealed Klukosky had, among other actions, secretly recorded 11 videos depicting a 13-year-old girl in a bathroom.

According to his plea agreement, Klukosky, 43, drove to a registered sex offender's home in Laurel with an SD card containing at least 120 images and six videos of child pornography, which Klukosky helped load onto the sex offender's computer and cell phone. A federal probation officer discovered the images and videos on the sex offender's cell phone in June 2012.

The FBI searched Klukosky's home Oct. 23, 2012, seizing video cameras, key fob cameras, computers and an external hard drive that contained approximately 2,000 images and 16 videos of child pornography.

The videos were taken with key fob cameras and in one or more, Klukosky is himself recorded while setting up the camera or taking it down.

If the court accepts his plea agreement, Klukosky will be sentenced to 20 years in prison followed by up to lifetime supervised release. Sentencing is set for May 20.

The FBI's Maryland Child Exploitation Task Force investigated the case, and Laurel and Howard County police departments and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service Office of the Inspector General helped with the investigation.
