Wow. Old, white doctor in the big house. Guilty of child porn. Dude, you are going to be REALLY popular. As for Mrs. Nowicki's desire to have her husband just be "allowed to come home with her", I bet the children exploited in those pictures he financially subsidized would love to have their dignity and innocence back. Rot in hell you miserable P.O.S.

Wake up, Mrs. Nowicki. Your husband is about as disgusting a human being as they come. His sentence is far too light. The Internet is a dangerous cespool? No, sir, YOU are dangerous. You choose the waters in which you wade. Our children will be that much less safe upon your release.

Probably because he was a pediatrician and I doubt their are many kids to treat where he's going.

Not to defend this doctor's crime, but I have read on many ocasions where a guy or gal received a much lesser sentence for having 'physical' contact with a minor(s).
Think he could have afforded a better lawyer. Other offenders seem to find them.
Sentencing apparently was handed down because of his profession.

Instead of advocating for this dirtbag to get a lessor sentence, why not focus on the disgusting men who get less time for physical contact and demand stricter sentences for them?

The problem with prosecuting kiddie pervs is since children are involved the prosecutors will try to plea so as to not have to have the children testify. Stop pleading down these sickos. Whether they are watching kiddie porn or participating in sexually abusing the children, they do not need to be in society as a free person. They should all rot.

"The Internet is a dangerous cesspool"? Dr Nowicki?

And all women should be under the veil because they're such temptresses? I'm surprised he didn't blame the children for being photographed.

What a way to avoid personal responsibility for one's actions.

How could he be in Sex Offender treatment if he had not yet been convicted and sent to prison as a Sex Offender? In Ohio, most Sex Offenders have to go to Sex Offender Therapy after prison. Not sure what this guy is in. There is group therapy for sex addicts, but Sex Offender treatment is only for those who have been convicted of being a Sex Offender. Totally different approach. This guy and his wife need to understand who he has victimized. They are acting like he is the victim here. Sorry Doc. Go to prison.

"Jane Nowicki, his wife, said imprisoning her husband would serve no purpose.

"I just ask that he be allowed to go home with me" she said"

First off, why is she still with this pervert? Get a divorce and move on with life. Second, imprisoning this guy will serve a good purpose because he needs to pay for his crime. It sends a message to the public that doctors are not above the law.

Just think of all the babies and children he has had access to over the years.

Bet he's done a lot more damage than look at sick kiddie porn.

Like I have said before ... people that watch Child porn are sick individuals. But the people that make it is even worse. They are the ones that need locked up and throw away the keys.

I don't understand what they get from filming or watching it. These are children ... it is bad enough that grown people film this kind of stuff but at least they are old enough to decide that is what the want to do. But with children they need to stay as innocent as long as they can.

Trust me 27 months - 10 years ... this guy will meet some people in jail with children of their own and we know how some will react to people like him.

As for the wife ... if she wants to stand by her man (as sick as he is) it just goes to show how sick she herself is. Maybe they deserve each other. For all we know she may be watching also.

First off, the story mis-quotes him as acknowledging the material as "heinous". his quote was: "I understand the government's position regarding child pornography - it's heinous." This could be construed to mean that he understands the government thinks child pornography is heinous, or even that he's saying the government's position on child pornography is heinous.

In either case, there's no help for these sick freaks. I can't even believe his pathetic wife is supportive and sympathetic for the dues he's having to pay. Weirdos.

How come the IT director at Children's hosp was not fired and arrested for allowing child porn on hospital computers? Why is the child porn web site still up and running? Why dosen't the federal government require all PCs repair shops to scan all PCs brought in for service for child porn? Why are the Internet Service Providers like RoadRunner and WOW not shut down for storing and distributing child porn on thier computers and networks?

It's a dam shame that this federal judge didn't give this butt-head 10 years in prison. A children's doctor who would subscribe to such behavior deserves everything he get and then some. With easter week-end upon us, such conduct, by his wife, prosecutor and defense attorney as well as the judge is a dam shame. Too each of you, I say shame, shame, shame......
