Air Force Colonel, Army Major Admit Child Porn Crimes

  • By

BALTIMORE, Md. - Two former U.S. military officers have admitted to producing child pornography in two unrelated cases. One man had a top-secret cybersecurity clearance. 

A former colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserves admitted in a federal court he used his government-issue computer to look at child pornography.

Brian Wade Eddy, who was also civilian employee of Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton. Eddy admitted he searched for and watched child porn on his work laptop back in December of last year. He's since been terminated from his job. 

Eddy was charged back in May and a federal grand jury returned an indictment charging him with knowingly accessing, with intent to view, child pornography.

Eddy will remain in federal custody while he waits to hear his sentence. He could spend the next 10 years in prison. In addition, he faces up to a $250,000 fine and five years of supervised release.

Eddy is not the only person member of the military facing child pornography charges.

Major Jason Musgrove Pleads Guilty

A member of the Army Cyber Joint Headquarter with top security clearance pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to Production of Child Pornography.  

Jason Michael Musgrove, 40,  admitted to using a hidden camera to film kids using a bathroom in his home.

“We’re grateful to our FBI partners for their work in identifying and removing this threat to children. Their diligent and fast action in this case is inspiring,” said U.S. Attorney Christine. “There is no place in the Southern District where such a despicable predator will be allowed to hide from justice.”

Musgrove faces up to 30 years in prison.
