Suspect allowed to view child porn in Wash. jail--video extra

-A A +A

SEATTLE (AP) — Authorities in Washington state say they're outraged that a former pilot who's already admitted molesting young boys is being allowed to watch videos he made of the abuse while he sits in jail awaiting trial.

"The whole thing is just dirty," said Pierce County Sheriff's Detective Ed Troyer on Wednesday. "Now that victims know he's going to be watching this, they're going to feel victimized again. This is our call to action to get the law changed."

Washington's Supreme Court ruled in 2007 that upon request, prosecutors must give defense lawyers copies of evidence used to support child pornography charges — but it appears nevertheless rare that defense attorneys actually make that request.

The court's 8-1 decision said that granting copies of the materials was essential so that defense lawyers, their investigators and the defendants themselves could challenge the evidence — such as by arguing that the people depicted weren't really minors.
