FAA Computer Technician Jailed for Possessing Child Pornography

Lawrence A. Sage, a former FAA air-traffic-control computer specialist in Auburn, WA, was sentenced by a U.S. District Court judge in Seattle to 27 months in prison for possession of child pornography. OIG investigated Sage for using the government computer in his work station to download, view, and save child pornography and other obscene materials. Sage pleaded guilty to one count of possessing child pornography. As a result of OIG's investigation, Sage resigned from his position on July 11, 2003.
