NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Two brothers from Newport News pled guilty Tuesday to receiving child pornography.
The twins, Andrew Lee Liesman and Randall Scott Liesman, both 25, were indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of distribution, receipt and possession of child pornography. U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride said the two were also indicted on charges of obscene visual representations of the sexual abuse of children.
According to MacBride, the twins confessed to downloading child pornography after they distributed child pornography to undercover officers and a search warrant was executed.
The Liesmans face up to 20 years in prison and a lifetime of supervised released when they are sentenced on April 23.
