    ND - Dr. John Coddington for child pornography, Wishek, 2010

    Don't you just hate when you google~doctor child pornography~and something comes up? Those are two words you really don't want to see linked. Forty-four years of experience, according to a review site. I guess we totally missed this.


    Court Papers Filed In Child Porn Possession Case

    "A Hoven doctor who's practiced for decades is now accused of having hundreds of pornographic photos of children. Officials arrested 74-year-old John Coddington Wednesday in Wishik, North Dakota...."


    "....If found guilty, he could be sentenced to up to 70 years in prison..."


    "...On September 29, the special agent began to search the computer, and by last Friday, the agent had found 200 to 300 photos of children in sexual acts or simulated acts. The special agent says the photos also indicate the children's ages, some of which are as young as three years old...."

    I bet that community is struggling now...Hoven seems to be a very small town

    "A well stocked grocery store, a sizeable convenience store, and a restaurant/steak house offer several food choices."

    There's also "a" K-12 school.


    I bet everybody w/i 50-mile radius knows this 'doctor'...I'm from a small town & I know I would just be throwing up sick if I found out my doctor for my whole life collected CP...yuck!
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Sadly, once again a doctor's supporters are wrong--dead wrong. And finally a judge who believes in the theory of consecutive sentences. Very sad for the entire community.....and the victims of this man's sick lust:


    Hoven doctor gets 5 years each for 2 counts of possessing child pornography

    "Dr. John W. Coddington, 74, of Hoven was sentenced today for two counts of possessing child pornography.

    Circuit Court Judge Brown sentenced Coddington to five years for each count to run consecutively in the state penitentiary. Coddington plead guilty on March 7 to those two counts...."
