In Dec. 2016, police received information about an individual using the Internet to distribute images and videos believed to be child pornography. Police recovered several electronic devices belonging to Speights with several videos containing child pornography.

During the investigation, police say dozens of potential victims were identified. They are also currently identifying victims that may be outside of Prince George’s County and out of state due to Speights involvement with the traveling team, the South County Steelers.
