Deacon Charged With Possession Of Child Pornography

PARKSIDE, Pa. -

A Delaware County Deacon and Sunday school teacher, is charged with possession of child pornography.

Police say Steven Almond admitted to downloading child porn videos, but thought he wasn't doing anything wrong, since the videos were free and in the public domain.

Investigators raided Almond's home, taking four computers, a hard drive, 2 USB flash drives, and over 20 DVDs.

Detectives conducted a preliminary examination of these items and located more than 50 videos which depict children under the age of 18 years old engaging in sexual acts and/or poses, and are believed to be child pornography. Some of these videos even depict children that appear to be less than 5 years old.

Almond told police he is a Deacon for the Middletown Presbyterian Church. 

He stated that he teaches Sunday school and is a basketball coach for Upward Bound Basketball League. He stated that he has never had inappropriate contact with any children.
