PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The hearing for a Pennsylvania State Soldier who was arrested on child pornography charges has continued.
Soldier Sean McKenzie is expected to appear in court after allegedly admitting to possessing and viewing child pornography.
McKenzie was arrested earlier this month after police revealed online that more than 200 files of child pornography had been uploaded to one account.
Police say the files found are related to McKenzie.
McKenzie had worked for the State Police T Team in New Stanton, and had been a State Soldier for thirteen years.
Prosecutors continued the hearing today, saying there were no witnesses to their expertise.
McKenzie’s attorneys are now pushing to get him out of jail.
“We asked to put the bond. The judge said he would not change the bond at this point. It is our plan to file a petition to establish a relationship. Mr. McKenzie is a longtime member of the community. He’s not a flight risk guy and has never been in trouble before. Given those factors, we believe a bond should be established,” said Tim Andrews, McKenzie’s attorney.
A judge dismissed the tie when McKenzie was arrested on March 3.
He remains in the Fayette County jail without bond.
