More child porn found at sex offender center

Associated Press
SEATTLE — More residents of Washington’s Special Commitment Center for sex offenders have been indicted on federal charges of child pornography. The seven indictments were unsealed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Seattle. The documents don’t specify how the men supposedly obtained the child porn. It’s been an ongoing mystery at the center on McNeil Island, which blocks residents from the Internet. At least four other sex offenders have faced child porn charges before, and officials have said they don’t know about the source. Several of the charges date to 2007, but some are more recent. The men were all committed involuntarily for treatment after they served their prison terms. If convicted, they could be sent back to prison.
