A federal grand jury indicted Eric Wayne Grinder, 36, with three counts of production of child pornography and two counts of possession of child pornography on Wednesday, according to a news release from the United States Attorney's Office in Baltimore.
According to the indictment, from June 2013 through August 2016, Grinder allegedly sexually abused a now 10-year-old child, and produced images of himself and the minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Grinder used electronic communications devices to store and obtain visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, according to the release.
Eric Wayne Grinder, 36, of the 200 block of Montpelier Court, was charged with one count each of sexual abuse of a minor, continued course of conduct of sexual abuse of a minor, second-degree assault, distribution of a controlled dangerous substance to another and possession of child pornography. He was held without bail Tuesday, which remained unchanged after a Wednesday bail review, according to electronic court records.
Grinder faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison for each count of production of child pornography and a maximum of 20 years in prison for each count of possession of child pornography, according to the release. An initial appearance has been scheduled in U.S. District Court in Baltimore for May 4.
