Booking photo of Gregory Gibson, charged with child pornography.A 63-year-old Cockeysville man who is a youth group leader at a local church has been charged with possession and distribution of hundreds of thousands of pornographic images of extremely young children.

Gregory W. Gibson, of the 10300 block of Malcolm Circle, 21030, is held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $750,000 bail. He was arrested Thursday at his home.

Detectives in BCoPD's Crimes Against Children Unit say this is one of the most serious child pornography cases they have ever seen. Police so far have discovered about 250,000 pornographic images of extremely young, prepubescent children -- mostly girls -- on Gibson's computers and hard drives. These are disturbing images depicting child sexual abuse and explicit sex acts and erotica involving children.

Youth Group Leader

Gibson leads a youth group at the Chinese Christian Church of Baltimore, 1800 Cromwell Bridge Rd., Parkville, for children ranging in age from 9 through college age. Also, Gibson's wife has been operating an unlicensed daycare operation from the home; police have notified authorities of the illegal daycare operation.

There is no indication at this time that Gibson has abused children or used children he knows to produce pornographic material; however, the investigation remains ongoing.

The investigation began in February, when detectives identified online child pornography they traced through computer forensics to Gibson. Search and seizure warrants were executed at Gibson's home and place of employment on April 16; detectives seized computers and hard drives belonging to Gibson containing a massive amount of child pornography.

During interviews with detectives, Gibson said he struggles with his need to view child pornography and admitted to downloading and sharing child pornography.

Robert David WrightA  35-year-old Cockeysville man who is a youth group leader at a Baltimore County church has been charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.

Robert David Wright, of the 10000 block of Hillgreen Circle, 21030, is held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $150,000 bail.

An investigation by BCoPD’s Crimes Against Children Unit found that Wright had downloaded to his home computer thousands of pornographic images of female babies, toddlers and prepubescent girls, including images of children being raped.

The investigation shows that Wright shared these images electronically with other users.

Wright is a youth group leader at Clynmalira United Methodist Church, 2920 Stockton Road, Phoenix.  There is no evidence at this time that any of the children pictured in the photos and videos recovered at Wright’s residence were members of Clynmalira UMC, or that Wright sexually abused children himself.  However, the investigation is ongoing, and detectives are still reviewing the vast amount of pornographic material seized from this suspect’s home.

All images of child abuse recovered during investigations by the Crimes Against Children Unit are forwarded to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the nonprofit organization that serves as the clearinghouse nationally for information on missing and exploited children. This organization attempts to identify victims of child pornography.

Photo of Raymond Fernandez, charged with sexual child abuse.Baltimore County Police have charged Raymond Fernandez, 49, of the unit block of Crosswall Court, 21236, with the sexual child abuse of two teenagers. At the time the abuse occurred, Raymond Fernandez was a teacher and a youth group leader at Greater Grace Church, 6000 block of Moravia Park Drive, 21206.

Recently, the victim came forward to report that Raymond Fernandez had sexually abused him in 1997. The victim reported that the suspect was a church youth group leader, and that the victim had been abused during youth group functions and at the suspect's home. Detectives also learned that the suspect had sexually abused a second victim associated with the church youth group in 1997.

Raymond Fernandez was arrested this morning, and is currently being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

May Be Additional Victims

Detectives believe that there may be additional victims and are asking anyone with information to contact the Baltimore County Police Crimes Against Children Unit at 410-853-3650.
