A Baltimore County man has been charged with possessing and distributing child pornography after Maryland State Police said they intercepted his attempts to download sexual images on the Internet, authorities said in a statement released yesterday.

Shawn J. Eisenstein, 21, of the first block of Strongwood Road in Owings Mills, faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted. Police said he was charged with three counts of distributing child pornography and 10 counts of possessing child pornography.

Police said in a statement that in March troopers identified a man in a chat room offering videos of children engaged in sex acts for others to download. Police said investigators traced the e-mails to a house in Owings Mills. The investigation was conducted by the Maryland State Police Computer Crimes Unit.

Investigators found 20 videos depicting children under the age of 16 "engaged in various stages of sexual activity" stored on several computers found at the house, police said. The videos were sent to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children for review.

Police said Eisenstein surrendered to state police at the Golden Ring Barracks yesterday morning. He was released on personal bail by a District Court commissioner to await trial, police said.
