Pediatrician Pleads Guilty to Possessing Child Sexual Abuse Images

Investigators found that Phillip T. Nowicki, of Columbus, Ohio area pediatrician had used a computer at Columbus hospital where he worked to subscribe to an illegal international child sexual abuse image website that gave him access to thousands of images and videos of child pornography. According to The Cypress Times this pediatrican pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to one count of possession of child pornography immediately following an investigation by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Homeland Security (HSI). At his hearing an HSI agent testified that an illegal international child porn website identified Nowicki as a subscriber to the website. “If people know they can make money trafficking images of children being sexually exploited, that puts all children at risk,” said U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio Carter M. Stewart. “Prosecuting those who jeopardize the safety and well-being of children will continue to be a priority for the office.”
ICE encourages people to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free hoteline at 1-866-DHS-2ICE. Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may be reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, an Operation Predator partner, at 800-843-5678.
