    AK - John 'Jack' Shay, community leader, arrested - producing child porn

    Another man of high repute and decades of public service who has been hiding a nasty vile secret. SHAME!! My prayers go out to the victim. She knows who she is. I wonder if she ever tried to tell?

    Ketchikan ex-mayor faces 80 additional child porn charges
    November 11, 2011

    "One of Ketchikan's most prominent political leaders, already accused of possessing child pornography, now finds himself charged with 80 additional counts including one involving a homemade video featuring himself unclothed with a young girl, according to police. John W. "Jack" Shay, 80, now is accused of 90 counts of possessing child pornography. He turned himself in to the Ketchikan jail Thursday afternoon...."

    and

    "...Almost all of the new charges involve photos printed off the Internet and stored in boxes in his home office, said deputy police chief Josh Dossett. Some of the images involve adults attempting sex acts with infants and toddlers, according to the charges. In at least one, a little girl is duct-taped. Some photos were of young boys. Police began investigating Shay on Nov. 4 after he brought his laptop to a Ketchikan computer shop for repair...."

    and

    "....They also seized hundreds of videos including home movies but have only gone through only a small portion so far, Dossett said. Many of the home movies were the Hi8 format; some were VHS. One of those seized videos contained a pornographic scene featuring Shay..."

    and

    "...The charges say Shay stepped into the frame talking to a girl about getting dressed for the day. He looked maybe 10 years younger than his current age, though police haven't yet dated the video. The girl was somewhere between age 6 and 10..."

    and

    "....Shay took off his clothes and sat on the bed directly in front of the camera, according to the charges. At first the child was playing on the bed, out of the frame. Shay got the girl onto his lap and touched her sexually through her clothing as she tried to squirm away..."

    and

    "....The same tape also contains another home movie scene. In this one, the camera was placed between the sheets toward the pelvic area of a sleeping young girl, the charges say. There's a light source. A man's hand can be seen touching the child's genitals..."

    and

    "....Shay's political life there spans decades, beginning with an appointment to the school board in 1972 and including two terms for both city and borough mayor, largely ceremonial positions. He's also active in community theater. He has a long-time girlfriend. "Everybody's in disbelief," said Ketchikan Mayor Lew Williams...."
