Salisbury Teen's Trial For Child Porn Charges Pending

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - The trial for a Salisbury teen facing child pornography related charges was scheduled Tuesday, but is now pending.

18-year-old Akshay Rajashekar, accused of possession and distribution of child pornography, was not transported to the trial. Prosecutors say he is still in federal custody, charged with an unrelated crime. Rajashekar was arrested in March for allegedly trying to set up a sexual encounter with a 12-year-old girl, through what the defendant believed was the girl's father. According to charging documents, the person Rajashekar was talking to online, was in fact an undercover law enforcement officer, posing as a pedophile on Craigslist.

 Officials say the case in Wicomico County is being held in warrant status until the federal case is concluded.
