Peabody man admits to downloading, sharing child porn

(Continued)

Denner said his client was a man who struggled to form relationships with others, and who was dealing with the strain of a family tragedy on his marriage when he turned to pornography on the Internet.

Lowy said he was concerned that Bushway had tried in his letter to minimize his behavior.

“Did you understand, sir, that when you had this material on your computer that other human beings, because of your file sharing, would be able to view this as well?” asked the judge.

“I understand it better today than when it happened,” Bushway replied.

Bushway, who has been free on bail since shortly after his arrest, was put into handcuffs in the courtroom as family members watched.

He’ll be eligible for parole in three months.

Lowy warned Bushway that if he violates his probation, he could face a 10-year minimum mandatory term on the charge of distributing child pornography.
