Ex-Boy Scout Leader Gets More Than 7 Years In Federal Prison For Child Porn

A 41-year-old Boy Scout leader has been sentenced to more than 7 years in federal prison after collecting hundreds of images of child pornography.

Christopher Sokiera of Shaler Township in western Pennsylvania apologized to the child victims depicted in his collection, his parents, the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts prior to his sentencing on Thursday.

“He apologized … to everyone he’s shamed,” defense attorney Frank Walker II said.

Walker also noted that Sokiera denied ever possessing, sharing or creating any pornography relating to the Boy Scouts.

“He passed a lie detector and he was specifically asked about that,” Walker said.

I don’t know that that helps his case any to admit that, but it is a serious issue for a man to knowingly be in possession of child pornography.

It’s even worse that he is a leader among children in the capacity of the Boy Scouts.

The Associated Press reports:

Sokiera had been a volunteer and adviser for the NIscha Nimat chapter in the Beaver Valley and Seneca districts of the Boy Scouts before his arrest last year.

Detectives from the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office charged Sokiera in October after getting tips from an anonymous online service that reports suspected child pornography about online traffic to and from Sokiera’s personal computer.

The Boy Scouts issued a statement then saying Sokiera’s behavior was “unacceptable and runs counter to everything for which the Boy Scouts of America stands.”

Federal authorities took over the case and charged Sokiera in January with possessing material depicting the sexual exploitation of a minor. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jessica Lieber Smolar told the judge that Sokiera cooperated immediately and pleaded guilty in February.

The bulk of Sokiera’s collection included images and videos of children under 12, including males and females engaged in sex acts with one another.

Not surprisingly, photos of little boys were a part of his collection, which he told investigators he had been accumulating for nearly 20 years.

Once he is released from prison, the judge has ordered that he serve 20 years supervised release.

He will have monitored computer access and will not have contact with children unless it is supervised by another adult and approved by his probation officer.

Currently, Sokiera is free and will report to prison in a few weeks.

As the Boy Scouts have slowly succumbed to a moral deluge brought on by the sodomite community, this latest revelation comes as no surprise.

In 2013, we reported that in the Boy Scouts of America, homosexual child sex abuse happens all too often.

At that time, Bradlee Dean pointed out:

 

  • Scout leader Brett Tayler was charged with more than 30 counts of child molestation and exploitation. He is suspected of molesting at least 10 boys from ages 6-9 years old.
  • Scout leader Peter Robert Stibal II was sentenced to 21 years for sexually abusing four Scouts from 2003 to 2008 and possessing child pornography.
  • Douglas Smith Jr., who ran the child-abuse prevention program for the BSA, was sentenced to eight years in federal prison for trafficking child pornography on the Internet.

Following the move by the BSA to issue an unconditional surrender to the homofascist left, columnist Matt Barber wrote, “In so doing, the [Boy Scouts of America (BSA)] effectively waived the only legal defense it once had to preclude openly homosexual Scout leaders and gender-confused girls from its ranks: religious and moral conviction. It’s only a matter of time until the BSA is forced to capitulate to sexual extremists’ political demands and allow homosexual adults – men who define their identity based upon carnal appetites for other males – to take your boys on overnight camping trips.”

Don’t think for a second that child pornography doesn’t have anything to do with the sodomite agenda.  It has everything to do with it.

As Bradlee Dean warned the Boy Scouts of America by pointing across our border to what has taken place in Canada, the BSA should consider it even more, and so should any and all parents who have their kids in the BSA, especially if there are open sodomite leaders.

In 2013, Dean wrote:

In 1998, Canadian Scouts (CS) decided to allow females, atheists, agnostics, homosexuals, bisexuals, and transsexuals to join the CS. In 1999, they approved the establishment of an all-homosexual troop, which now marches in Canada’s “gay pride” parades. Within five years, scouting membership dropped over 50 percent, many scouting camps and offices were closed, and staff was laid off.

More importantly is the tragic sexual abuse by leaders in scouting.

Brian Rushfeldt, president of Canada Family Action, stated, “They have secret files (here in Canada) as they do down there (in the U.S.) of guys that had abused kids that they hadn’t reported. There were investigations into the abuse of boys, which never really produced anything in Canada.”

If homosexual child abuse has already been a problem in the BSA, it would be a tragedy to allow homosexuals to infiltrate their organization.

America could learn from Canada in more ways than one.

He went on to point out the destruction behind redefining marriage to include sodomites in Canada, as well.

The BSA took a beating over its historically Christians morality and principles regarding sodomy.

The organization took beatings from companies like UPS, as well as political candidates like former Massachusetts Governor and twice-failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Ultimately, they were more concerned with how those types of companies and individuals portrayed them than they were seeking to protect the boys that were entrusted to them and honoring God in the process.
