1 year and 1 day in prison for Ohio doc in child-porn case



Published: Fri, July 11, 2014 @ 1:39 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A former top pediatric cancer doctor was sentenced to a year and one day in prison today after his guilty plea to a charge of accessing child pornography.

Before sentencing, Christopher Pelloski told federal Judge James Graham 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, the former director of Ohio State University’s pediatric cancer radiation program, said he also added to the pain felt by families whose children he was treating, since they had to wonder if he had ever harmed their children.

“I’ve generated a lot of harm and I’ve hurt those who loved me the most,” Pelloski said.

The government found no evidence that Pelloski committed crimes with children under his care.

Graham also fined Pelloski $10,000, placed him on federal supervision for five years after his release from prison and strictly restricted his future Internet use. Pelloski must also register as a sex offender.
