Ohio Doctor Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography Charge

C. Pelloski Sentenced to One Year and One Day for Accessing Illegal Material

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A former top pediatric cancer doctor in Ohio has been sentenced to a year and one day in federal prison following his guilty plea to a charge of accessing child pornography.

Before sentencing Friday, Christopher Pelloski told the judge he had harmed children, shamed his family and burdened colleagues in the pediatric cancer field by committing a crime that meant he would never practice medicine again. Pelloski is former director of Ohio State University's pediatric cancer radiation program.

The government found no evidence he committed crimes with children under his care. Pelloski said he hopes to get a job researching cancer cures and become an anti-child pornography advocate. The judge said Pelloski's case highlights the "mushrooming social phenomenon spawned by the ... ocean of pornography ... that circulates on the Internet."
