Thomas Kartes – Soccer coach Guilty! Child Porn

A federal judge on Dec. 19 sentenced Thomas Kartes, 45, of Fairfax to 60 months in prison for attempting to receive child pornography via the Internet.

Kartes also was sentenced to serve 10 years of supervised release following the completion of his prison term. In addition, he is required to register as a sex offender in any jurisdiction in which he lives, works or goes to school.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office Eastern District of Virginia, Kartes previously served as a major in the U.S. Army. He was also commissioner and coach of the Braddock Road Youth Soccer Club, where he was involved with the U14 girls soccer program. Kartes also served as an assistant Scoutmaster with a local Boy Scout Troop.

Court documents and court proceedings indicate Kartes used his personal credit card and home computer to subscribe to a number of commercial child pornography Web sites. Between Oct. 2006 and April 2007, Kartes spent about $780 on such subscriptions.

Authorities said a July 11, 2007 search of Kartes’ residence revealed computers containing more than 350 images of child pornography. Kartes told federal agents that he had been subscribing to commercial child pornography Web sites for about four years.
