Oswego Man Pleads Guilty To Child Porn Charge


An Oswego man faces as much as 10 years in federal prison after admitting he had child pornography.

David Alan Panchou pleaded guilty in federal court in South Carolina on Tuesday to a charge of possessing child pornography.

Panchou was arrested on April 21, 2007 in Conway, South Carolina during what the United States Attorney’s Office describes as a routine traffic stop.  During the stop, the officer found a small amount of marijuana and arrested Panchou.  During a search of his car, police found three printed photos depicting child pornography.  Later, a search of a laptop found in the car revealed more images of child porn.

A date for Panchou’s sentencing has not been set.

The maximum sentence is 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.  Under federal minimum sentencing laws, some amount of prison time is mandatory.
