Technology Officials Charged with Child Pornography

Technology officials in Pennsylvania and New York have been accused of possessing child pornography.

In the Pennsylvania case, former Marple Newtown School District Technology Director Joseph Violanti was indicted on federal child pornography charges. Violanti, who started with the district in January 2007, was charged in October of receiving sexually explicit images of minors and possession of child pornography. He resigned his position last month for personal reasons.

Rochester (NY) City School District information technology department employee David W. Schreier, already facing a felony charge of videotaping a woman without her knowledge, also has been charged with possessing a sexual performance by a child.

Schreier was originally arrested Dec. 24 and charged with unlawful surveillance after a woman complained of a man looking through the front door of her house with a video camera. The additional charges were lodged after a search of his computer turned up the alleged child pornography.
