Dentist gets conditional sentence after pleading guilty on child porn charges
A Toronto dentist convicted of collecting the biggest stash of child porn in this country will not serve any time behind bars. Instead, the 58 year old will be under house arrest with three years probation. Police will be able to search his home and computer without a warrant. Dr. Leslie Griesdorf pleaded guilty to possessing and accessing child porn after he was arrested in February, 2003. The judge ruled since he was a first time offender he was a minimal risk to re-offend because he never produced or shared child porn with anyone. Griesdorf was caught by answering a pop up on the internet and ordering from it. The F-B-I recorded his credit card number and then sent it to Toronto police. Child's rights groups say such a light punishment may encourage abuse rather than deter it.
