1 year, 1 day for Ohio doctor in child porn case

July 11, 2014

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A judge has handed down a sentence of one year and one day in prison for an Ohio pediatric doctor who pleaded guilty to accessing child pornography.

Federal judge James Graham also fined defendant Christopher Pelloski $10,000, placed him on federal supervision for five years and strictly restricted his use of the Internet.

Graham said at Friday's sentencing his goal was to impose a sentence severe enough to reflect the seriousness of the crime but also reflected several positive facts about Pelloski, including his career treating and researching childhood cancer.

Federal prosecutor Heather Hill had asked for a sentence of at least 18 months.

Pelloski told the judge he had harmed children, shamed his family and burdened former colleagues, and understood the need for punishment.
