Reddit user pleads guilty to sharing child porn on site

Posted by Bloomberg Businessweek on November 29, 2018 11:04:02A Redditor known only as “PizzasGuy” pleaded guilty to distributing child porn and was sentenced to six months in jail on Wednesday.

The Redditor, who identifies himself only as Pizzas, was arrested in March 2018 and charged with child pornography after investigators found dozens of photos of children, including one that showed a 10-year-old girl being filmed.

He pleaded guilty in September and admitted to having over 2,000 photos and videos of child pornography.

In a plea agreement, he admitted to “pornographic and child exploitation” but denied possessing child pornography, and he was sentenced in September to six weeks in jail and two years probation.

Pizzases lawyer, Robert L. DeMarco, told the judge in the plea agreement that his client “was in fact a pedophile” and that he “had a lot of children that he knew he was sharing with others.”

He said that Pizzases “personal and professional lives have been negatively affected” by the allegations.

Pizzays lawyers said that he had been a regular member of r/the_donald, a subreddit that promotes racist and white supremacist views.
