FORMER CAPS YOUTH HOCKEY COACH PLEADS GUILTY TO CHILD PORNOGRAPHY OFFENSES

~ Former volunteer assistant coach with the Washington Little Capitals pleaded guilty to ten felony counts including soliciting an undercover investigator posing as 12-year old boy~ 

 

 

FAIRFAX (September 28, 2015)- Timothy Bodenheimer, 28, of Fairfax Station, pleaded guilty today to ten felony counts involving the solicitation of an undercover investigator posing as a 12-year-old boy and distribution and possession of child pornography.  Attorney General Mark R. Herring made the announcement after the guilty pleas were accepted by Circuit Court Judge Jan L. Brodie. Bodenheimer will be sentenced on December 11, 2015. 

 

"Any person who seeks to rob children of their innocence through sexual solicitation and the distribution and ownership of child pornography deserves to be behind bars," said Attorney General Herring. "I'd like to thank the prosecutors from my office and investigators who work tirelessly to apprehend child predators across Virginia. This case serves as a strong reminder that we must continue to fight against those who solicit minors and own, produce, and distribute heinous material that perpetrates the cycle of abuse and exploitation experienced by child victims."

 

According to court records and evidence presented at the plea hearing, a concerned father contacted law enforcement officers after his child was solicited online. During the course of the subsequent investigation, Bodenheimer solicited an undercover investigator, posing as a 12-year-old boy. Bodenheimer sent the undercover investigator images of child pornography, and asked for nude pictures in return. Investigators subsequently executed a search warrant at Bodenheimer's residence in Fairfax Station and recovered hundreds of images containing child pornography. Investigators recovered thousands more images of child pornography belonging to Bodenheimer from a residence in Loudoun County.

 

Bodenheimer pleaded guilty to one count of use of a communication system to solicit a minor, which carries a maximum penalty of ten years' imprisonment; one count of distribution of child pornography, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years' imprisonment; and eight counts of Possession of Child Pornography, each of which carry a maximum penalty of five years' imprisonment.    

 

This case was investigated by the Northern Virginia-Washington, D.C. Internet Crimes Against Children (NOVA-DC ICAC) Task Force. Assistant Attorneys General Marc J. Birnbaum and Stacey Rohrs of the Virginia Attorney General's Office are prosecuting the case on behalf of the Commonwealth.
