Lovettsville Man Indicted on Child Porn Charge

A Loudoun grand jury on Monday handed up 25 indictments on charges related to possession of child pornography against a Lovettsville man who has already filed a lawsuit claiming he was falsely accused.

David Goldman was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography in March, but prosecutors dropped the case at the District Court level. In May, Goldman filed a civil lawsuit against the Sheriff’s Office and its two public information officers alleging defamation and seeking $1.5 million in compensatory and punitive damages.

Following the District Court action, investigators continued their review of computer files allegedly belonging to Goldman and that additional evidence was presented to the grand jury on Monday, resulting in the direct indictments.

The criminal cases are on July 17 Circuit Court docket for scheduling. The civil case is scheduled for motions to be heard Aug. 4.
