Greenbelt, MD (STL.News) U.S. District Judge Peter J. Messitte sentenced Anjan Ghosh Tagore, age 48, of Silver Spring, Maryland, to 15 years in federal prison, followed by lifetime supervised release, for receipt of child pornography and 18 months in federal prison for violating his supervised release from a previous federal conviction for possession of child pornography. The sentences were imposed on April 8, 2021 and are to be served consecutively. Judge Messitte also ordered that Tagore forfeit his electronic devices and pay $3,000 in restitution to a child pornography victim. Upon his release from prison, Tagore must also continue to register as a sex offender in the places where he resides, where he is an employee, and where he is a student, under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA).
The sentence was announced by Acting United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Jonathan F. Lenzner; Special Agent in Charge Jennifer C. Boone of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Baltimore Field Office; and Chief Marcus Jones of the Montgomery County Police Department.
According to Tagore’s plea agreement, in February 2019, the United States Probation Office was alerted by monitoring software that Tagore searched for images of “naked/nude/preteen” children on his desktop computer.
