PA - Prosecutors recommend 8 to 10 years on child porn charges for priest

We are glad that federal prosecutors are taking the child porn charges against Fr. Bartley Sorensen seriously. Children are always safer when predators are behind bars, and lengthy prison sentences teach predators that their actions are not without serious repercussions.

It is disingenuous to say that there is no evidence that Fr. Sorensen ever hurt a child, because due to the very nature of child porn, abuse must occur for this obscene material to be created in the first place. The possession and consumption of this type of pornography encourages its creation, and, by extension, the abuse of children worldwide. We hope that the judge sees through this hollow defense and will keep kids safe in the Pittsburgh area for years to come.
