Earlier this month, the news broke that a UMD freshman was arrested by D.C. police in an undercover child pornography sting operation. The student was charged with distributing child pornography and crossing state lines to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.<br />

Akshay Rajshekar was arrested after arranging to have sex with someone he thought was a 12-year-old girl, according to authorities.

 

Earlier this month, UMD had it’s own spin of “Dateline NBC’s To Catch a Predator”. On the 7th floor of the Hagerstown Hall dorm, Akshay Rajashekar seemed like any other freshman. But the 18-year-old from Salisbury, Md., was arrested in D.C. Monday after an undercover cyber sting. Police say he was planning to meet a man and his 12-year-old daughter for an illicit rendezvous. The man was an undercover cop who’d posted an ad on craigslist.
