Fort Washington, MD- Prince George’s County Police detectives today arrested a Fort Washington man for the possession and distribution of child pornography. The suspect is 22-year-old Rudolph Sengsy of the 1200 block of Van Buren Drive. He’s charged with 105 counts of possession of child pornography and two counts of distribution of child pornography.

On May 1, 2019, our partners at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children provided the PGPD with information on Sengsy’s alleged criminal behavior. Prince George’s County Police detectives immediately opened an extensive investigation that culminated with his arrest this morning at his home. The preliminary investigation reveals he uploaded the criminal content onto a social media platform.

At this time, there is no indication Sengsy produced child pornography or had inappropriate contact with any children.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
