James Scalia Admits To Being In Possession Of Child Pornography
An Evansville man has admitted to having child erotic images on his computer.
James Scalia has pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of child pornography.

Scalia admitted that he had looked at child pornography on his computer.
Investigators obtained a search warrant for the computer and found a total of 750 child erotic images.
As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek a two-and-one-half to five-year prison sentence, followed by a three-and-one-half to six-and-one half year suspended prison sentence, with 10 years of probation.
