Raymond Ewing Mack Pleads Guilty to Child Porn

A Scottdale man has pleaded guilty to a child pornography charge and faces a maximum 20-year prison term when he is sentenced in September.

Raymond Ewing Mack, 30, of 410 Eleanor Ave., pleaded guilty to one count of receiving child pornography Tuesday in Federal Court in Pittsburgh.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Soo C. Song said Mack was arrested after an undercover online FBI investigation into the trading of child pornography via peer-to-peer networks.

In July 2007, an FBI analyst obtained downloads of child porn from Mack via computer. Two months later, investigators served a search warrant and seized sexually explicit videos and images of prepubescent children on his computer.

Mack pleaded guilty in 2001 and 2007 in Fayette County for corruption of minors. He will be required to register as a sex offender.

Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 30 before Senior U.S. Judge Maurice Cohill.

Mack remains in the custody of U.S. marshals pending sentencing.
