Pennsylvania man charged for child pornography

A man who was formerly employed as an athletic trainer in a Pennsylvania school district has been charged with a sex-related crime. Among other allegations, he is accused of using a communications facility to commit illicit acts involving child pornography. The charges he now faces are categorized as third degree felonies.

The former Carlisle school employee is a 26-year-old man. Authorities say they caught him using file sharing computer programs to download and distribute pornographic materials involving children. He has been charged with 25 separate counts of possession of child pornography and several counts of distribution and criminal solicitation of the same.

Apparently, the man worked as an athletic trainer at Carlisle High School from autumn 2014 through the early months of 2016. His employment had reportedly been contracted through another agency. School officials have stated they do not believe the man has acted inappropriately toward any student in the school district. A spokesperson also said that all potential employees are subject to criminal background checks before being hired.

The man in this particular situation has never before been charged with child pornography in Pennsylvania. After his arrest in July, he posted $10,000 bail and was released from jail. He is scheduled to appear before a magistrate in mid-August 2016. Being charged with sex-related crimes involving children obviously places a person's private and professional reputation at stake. A key factor in minimizing the negative impact such circumstances may have on one's future often lies in building a strong defense through skilled, experienced and aggressive criminal defense representation.
