A Rockwood resident and former funeral director caught in a child pornography sting in Oct. 2015 has pleaded guilty to the charges. Thomas Allan Scarbrough appeared in US District Court Wednesday and brokered a plea deal on the charge of possession of child pornography. The plea deal locks in a penalty range of between 70 and 87 months when Scarbrough is sentenced later this year.
The plea comes after the judge agreed with judges across the nation that the FBI violated the US Constitutional rights and federal rules of 180 suspects in their “operation Pacifier”, which revealed those involved in the dark internet site known as “The Playpen.”  Scarbrough’s home and computer were searched for evidence, which was discovered via the illegal links. The FBI sting began in late 2014 when a foreign law enforcer contacted the FBI about the illicit website.
