State Rep. Wants Tougher Sentencing For Child Porn

A bill sponsored by State Rep. Marcy Toepel calls for more prison time for people who download and disseminate child pornography. Toepel says, it’s been happening for many years.

“In 2001 there were 16-hundred individuals were convicted of disseminating or possession of child pornography. In just one month the Attorney General identified 28-hundred active internet addresses downloading child pornography in Pennsylvania in one month. They’re very slick, the move around, changing their IP addresses.”


House Bill 321 passed in the House. It’s now in the State Senate for consideration. Toepel cites two recent cases for stronger laws. Last week,  a Lansdale man was charged with 100 counts of child porn and an assistant wrestling coach at Neshaminy High School was accused of downloading 50 images of young girls performing sex acts.  Toepel says harsher sentencing is needed. Toepel was a guest on the  AM-Edition Friday morning.
