    PA - Richard Roth for child pornography, Middletown, 2012

    As a long time parent of special needs children and advocate for the disabled.....sorry, not buying it. Roth's words tell me that he knew that viewing vile photos of children was wrong. He's already been convicted on an attempted child assault charge. One needn't be blessed with a high IQ or be physically healthy to hurt a child--or to victimize children by viewing child porn.

    I'm very sorry about Mr. Roth's challenges and limitations. However, children's safety always comes first. In the wise words of a judge dear to my heart....sometimes all society can do is sanction a person.

    Man on probation for child sex crime now charged with possessing child porn
    April 1, 2012

    "A brain-damaged Middletown man — on probation for a child-sex related crime — is facing more than a dozen counts of felony possession of child pornography. Richard Christopher Roth, 42, of the XXX block of Beechwood Circle, also faces a parole violation charge and an additional felony charge for failing to re-register under the state’s Megan’s Law.
    Roth, who is listed as a “lifetime” sexual offender, surrendered to police Friday and was arraigned on 17 counts of felony child pornography..."

    and

    "...Roth’s attorney, William Moore, told the judge that his client is not dangerous and he cannot travel without assistance. “He is not a threat to the community..."

    and

    "...But Middletown police believe otherwise. In December 2010, Roth pleaded guilty to attempted indecent assault on a child under age 13, unlawful contact with minors and indecent assault on a person under age 13. He was placed on probation for 10 years. Roth is listed as “noncompliant..."

    and

    "...To talk, Roth types into a keyboard computer device, which speaks for him. He also denied that he was a pedophile. “I am just desperate..."

    and

    “....He said that regular porn was getting old,” according to the affidavit...."
