Lindgren Sentenced on Child Pornography Charges

Nathan S. Lindgren, 28, of Lexington Park, was sentenced on May 24, 2024, to 12 years in prison for possession and distribution of child pornography.  The sentence was imposed by Calvert County Circuit Court Judge Mark S. Chandlee.


On March 9, 2021, the Maryland State Police Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force received a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) that someone was distributing child exploitation material.  Investigation led police to Lindgren.


Search warrants were obtained for Lindgren’s person, vehicle, and residence.  Upon execution of these warrants, police recovered Lindgren’s cell phone which contained multiple images of child pornography.  Lindgren admitted that he used the cell phone to distribute these images.


Upon release from prison, Lindgren will be on 5 years of supervised probation.  He will also be required to register as a sex offender.


This case was prosecuted by Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Rebecca N. Cordero.
