Ohio doctor to be sentenced in child porn case

July 11, 2014

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A judge is ready to sentence an Ohio pediatric doctor who pleaded guilty to accessing child pornography.

Christopher Pelloski has cited a troubled childhood and his own sexual abuse as a boy as he seeks a lighter sentence. He faces sentencing Friday morning before federal Judge James Graham in Columbus.

The sentencing had been postponed to give defense attorneys more time to gather additional character witnesses to testify about Pelloski's work against childhood brain cancer.

Pelloski is the former director of Ohio State University's pediatric cancer radiation program.

His attorneys say he compensated for his childhood by becoming an overachiever but also dealt with stress by abusing alcohol.

Federal prosecutors are seeking a four-year prison sentence. They say Pelloski's conduct went back several years and involved disturbing images.
