OH pediatric doctor to plead guilty to child porn

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The former director of Ohio State University's pediatric cancer radiation program has agreed to plead guilty to accessing child pornography.

A criminal complaint against Christopher Pelloski said he acknowledged to a member of a Franklin County special investigations unit that he used his home desktop computer and a laptop belonging to Ohio State to download the pornography, including videos and photos.

Documents filed in Columbus federal court Tuesday indicate Pelloski will plead guilty to one count of accessing digital files intending to view child pornography.

Pelloski faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine at sentencing should a judge accept his plea.

Defense attorney Dave Thomas declined to comment Tuesday.

Pelloski was director of the Pediatric Radiation Oncology Program at Ohio State's James Cancer Hospital.
