The Maryland Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force is organized under the Maryland State Police Computer Crimes Section. The task force is comprised of police agencies from around the state and its primary mission is to protect children from computer-facilitated sexual exploitation. The Task Force works cooperatively with law enforcement agencies and prosecutors to provide resources to combat these crimes. Additionally, the Task Force provides community awareness campaigns helping to prevent the spread of these crimes through education.

Cox was charged with multiple counts of theft in Frederick County in 2008 and in Frederick County District Court. On a charge of theft of another’s credit card, the Frederick County States Attorney agreed to a plea deal with Cox in which he entered a guilty plea in exchange for a fine of $500 and four months in jail. The fine was suspended as was the jail time as part of the deal, thus, no fine and no time.  All other charges were dropped.
