A federal judge has sentenced a Silver Spring man to 20 years and nine months in prison for conspiracy to produce child pornography.

Upon his release, David Andrew Pizer, 46, will have to register as a sex offender and will be under supervised release for the rest of his life, U.S. District Judge Paul W. Grimm ruled on May 7.

According to federal court filings, Pizer was part of an online forum in 2012 for people with sexual interest in children. He took interest in a 9-year-old girl whom an unnamed “co-conspirator” from Kansas advertised as “willing to submit to sexual degradation and abuse.”

Pizer engaged in online chats and web cam sessions with the girl and the person from Kansas, soliciting them for sexually explicit photos and videos, according to court filings.

Authorities recovered more than 600 sexual images of the girl on Pizer’s laptop, which contained a total of 4,486 images and six videos of children engaged in sex acts and in other sexual depictions, according to federal court records.

Pizer was indicted on April 3, 2013, on three child pornography charges: conspiracy to produce, distribution and possession.

He pleaded guilty to the first count of the indictment — conspiracy to produce child pornography — as part of an agreement signed between his attorney, Julie L. B. Johnson, and Assistant U.S. State’s Attorney Kristi O’Malley in September.

The other two counts were dismissed, court filings show.

Johnson, who is with the federal public defender’s office, was not available for comment Tuesday.
