Former children's worker faces child-porn charges

Posted: August 04, 2011

WILMINGTON - The former director of a nonprofit group that runs a children's camp in southern Delaware is facing federal child-pornography charges.

Harold Love Springer III, 73, of Wilmington, was indicted Tuesday on charges of transportation, receipt, and possession of child pornography. Springer is a former executive director of the Children's Beach House in Lewes, which serves children with special needs.

Authorities said that Springer was identified during an investigation into a computer network devoted to trading images of child pornography, and that an undercover agent observed about 2,000 files depicting child pornography that Springer had made available to network members.

If convicted, Springer faces five to 20 years in prison. He was being held pending a hearing Monday. - AP
