Murphy was previously given three years probation for possessing child pornography in 2008, after the Austrian Federal Criminal Bureau tracked Murphy’s Antietam Cable (now Antietam Broadband) account to a child pornography site, initiating a joint investigation by Maryland State Police and the FBI.
