GREENBELT, Md. — Kyle Stephen Thompson, 33, of Burtonsville, Md., was sentenced to 420 years in federal prison and lifetime supervised release for his conviction on 18 counts of production of child pornography involving videos documenting Thompson's sexual abuse of three young girls, aged 2 to 4-years-old.
The federal jury who heard evidence during his three-day trial in September 2018 found him guilty on each of the 18 counts after less than 30 minutes of deliberation.
By day, Kyle Stephen Thompson was a commercial HVAC technician out of Sterling, Virginia.
But for years in a wooded area near his apartment in Burtonsville, Maryland, court documents outline
Thompson's alleged rampant sexual abuse of three young girls dating back to May 2015.
Thompson showed videos he'd recorded of the abuse to another person who then reported it to
Montgomery County police, the documents said. One of the videos shows Thompson raping a 4-year-old girl "who was crying and yelled, 'I want my mommy,'" the documents said. The court document says
Thompson's voice could be heard saying: "Your mommy can't save you." "Investigators believe that Kyle Thompson may have befriended women who have young girls in order to gain access to those girls," the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
Police served a search warrant at the home March 17 2017 to find computers and storage devices that contained photos and videos of child pornography.
