VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A Virginia Beach man has pleaded guilty to producing child pornography.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office cited court documents that say 34-year-old Benjamin Taylor White took an image of a 12-year old completely naked in the shower.

That image was found on White’s cellphone – along with over 2,600 photos or videos of suspected child exploitation or pornographic material White had allegedly obtained through peer-to-peer file sharing in 2018.

Investigators also found White had searched for and accessed images of child pornography on a laptop dating as far back as 2008.

White could face between 15 and 30 years in prison when he is sentenced on June 21.
