Good man convicted of child porn possession

Courier Post

A former religion teacher and coach of several athletic teams at St. Joseph's High School in Hammonton was sentenced Friday to four years in federal prison for possessing as many as 300 images of child pornography.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jacqueline Carle said she was sure none of McColgan's friends and relatives who wrote in his support had seen the images he kept on his computer. She specifically referred to a letter from a priest at St. Peter's Church in Merchantville describing McColgan as "an outstanding member of the church and society."

One of the pictures the defendent emailed to an undercover officer showed a young girl (around 6 yrs old) being raped. This case and others like it are why I don't give much weight to personal references from friends and family when they insist a defendent in a sex crime can't be guilty.
