Mental evaluation sought for Youngstown man convicted of child pornography

Posted: Updated:

AKRON, Ohio - Attorneys for a Youngstown man have asked a federal judge to order a mental evaluation before he's sentenced for a child pornography conviction.

Leslie James Coe pleaded guilty in December to three charges, including exploiting children and possessing child pornography.

His attorney has filed a motion asking to delay Coe's scheduled March 18 sentencing date, claiming that Coe's actions have indicated that he may not be capable of understanding the proceedings against him.

Attorney Robert Duffrin claims that during a visit with his client on Wednesday, Coe said he did not know Duffrin or why he was there.  He further claimed that he did not have any memory beyond the events of 1994.

The judge has yet to rule on the motion.

The FBI said Coe downloaded video and images of male and female children, ranging in age from infants to 17-years-old engaged in sexual activity, sometimes with adults.
