Psychological exam ordered for Youngstown man convicted of child pornography

Posted: Updated:

AKRON, Ohio - A Youngstown man was not sentenced Tuesday on federal child pornography charges as originally scheduled..

Instead, a federal judge in Akron ordered that Leslie James Coe undergo a psychological evaluation.

Coe pleaded guilty earlier to three charges, including exploiting children and possessing child pornography.

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

Coe's attorney sought the examination and a delay in sentencing, saying that his client may not be capable of understanding the proceedings against him

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

The judge ordered that Coe be transferred to a federal medical facility to complete the examination and report.

The sentencing date has been delayed until the completion of the examination and review of the report.
