Salzburg judge charged for possession of child pornography

Salzburg Juvenile Court Judge, Peter H. appeared in court himself yesterday for possession of child pornography.

The 47-year-old has been sentenced to five months behind bars and a 2,250 Euro fine.  Whilst his career as a magistrate is over he will still keep his new position in the Department of Justice. The criminal would only lose this job if he was sentenced to more than one year’s imprisonment.

Investigators came across Peter H. when carrying out inquiries into an international child pornography ring. The judge admitted to all charges yesterday (Thurs) but hid his face during the proceedings.
