A former gas station employee from Glen Burnie was sentenced in federal court Thursday to 15 years in prison for taking naked pictures of three minors, according to a statement from the Maryland U.S. attorney's office.

Justin M. Bowman, 26, pleaded guilty to taking pictures of three minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct and then using a computer at S. Camp Meade Road Exxon in Linthicum, where he worked, to view and download the images last year, according to the plea agreement and statements in court.

A store employee became aware of Bowman's actions on the computer, the agreement said, and last July, police seized the store's computer and Bowman's home computer. which included pictures of three minors produced by Bowman at his home between September 2010 and July 12, 2011. Bowman admitted that he took the photos. Authorities found another 100-some images of child pornography on his computer, the plea statement said.

Following his release from prison, Bowman must register as a sex offender, under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.
