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.

A Letter to the Editor of Time Magazine

Recently Time.com published an article entitled, ” Study: Making Pornography More Accessible May Curb Child Abuse.” We responded:

Dear Ms. Park and Time Editors,

The Innocent Justice Foundation exists to educate the public on the true nature and scope of child pornography, and thereby correct misperceptions within the US population that using child pornography is a victimless crime, similar to viewing adult pornography, as might be implied by the article published today on Time.com entitled, “Study: Making Child Pornography More Accessible May Curb Child Abuse.” I would respectfully argue that nothing could be farther than the truth, and that possessors are extremely dangerous to children.

Doug Heuer, superintendent of Cleveland Heights-University Heights schools says “We are relieved that the justice system worked and that this criminal will never again be allowed in our community or have the opportunity to work with children again.” The forensic evidence uncovered by Ohio’s ICAC Task Forces facilitated this child predator’s sentencing. According to the Sun News, Judge Shirley Strickland Saffold found Christopher Thomas, former middle school teacher, guilty of one count of sexual battery, 22 counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material, seven counts of importuning (sending emails or texts to ask someone to perform a sexual act), and six counts of endangering children and one count of possessing criminal tools.

Foster Parent Sent to Prison for 25 years for Child Sexual Abuse Images, Child Sued using Masha’s Law

Gregg Larsen abused the trust placed in him by abusing the children in his foster care. This former school teacher and foster-care provider was sentenced to 25 years in prison. He was creating child pornography using the children in his foster care. These children are able to sue using a little-used federal statute called Masha’s Law, which gives children the right to sue anyone who produces, distributes, or possesses their pornographic images.

Thank you!

I am reminded time and again how little we can achieve on our own, and how reliant we are on people with large hearts to help us in our mission of supporting cops who rescue kids from sexual abuse. Recently we’ve gotten large donations – one from the Fresno Regional Foundation to fund mobile forensic units for Fresno Parole agents who had no other way to check sex offender computers for child sexual abuse images, another from a Foundation in Kansas who was willing to make sure that the Kansas Internet Crimes Against Children task force has the tools it needs to teach small agencies throughout the state how to find and catch child sex predators. We are incredibly grateful to these foundations for their significant investments into keeping their local children safe.

But even small donations which go to help Innocent Justice keep operating mean so much to us and go a long, long way.
