Nader was arrested during his arrival at the John F. Kennedy International Airport for “transporting visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.”
Investigators then seized his electronic devices that same day of his arrest and had a warrant to search his luggage, according to the Justice Department. The orders were issued concerning a “matter unrelated to child pornography,” according to the FBI.
Nader’s arrest warrant was issued, and a sealed criminal complaint was filed back in April of 2018, according to court records. Prosecutors have sought to keep it confidential to prevent him from fleeing or tampering with evidence until arrested.
Nader previously pleaded guilty to the same charge back in 1991, the Justice Department mentioned.
If convicted, Nader faces a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison and a maximum of 40 years.
