Now there are rumors about people in Ketch. having gone to the cops about Shay and being told that they didn't have enough evidence to follow up....of course they are just rumors but it makes me wonder how much of an open secret this might have been.

A former Alaska mayor who served on a school board and once received a "Citizen of the Year" award pleaded guilty on Monday to seven counts of possessing child pornography as part of a deal with prosecutors, police said.

Jack Shay, 80, a well-known political figure in the small southeast Alaskan community of Ketchikan, was arrested in November after police said child pornography images were found on a computer printer that he had dropped off for repair.

I don't think an eighty year old all of a sudden decides child porn is the way to go.

Wrennie, I've been hearing that a lot lately; seems there were indications of this sort of thing for awhile. I feel bad for ever defending him when it first became public.

All the lives he destroyed over the decades. I will save my sympathies and prayers for his victims.
How do you know that he "destroyed" anyones life? Have you asked any of the victims? Have they said that their life has been destroyed? Or is this hyperbole you are using?

We are talking about child porn here, is it so hard to imagine that lives were destroyed? That type of victimization stays with you for a lifetime.

He's 80 so it stands to reason he may have household help of some kind (not all housekeepers are women these days). Relatives etc. A lot of seniors are taken advantage of. http://www.cx-7.info/g.gif

The little pervert is very much of sound mind and body. Nobody was taking advantage of him.

He made a porn video with a little girl sitting on his lap while he was naked. Can't blame that on a housekeeper. Lock him up and throw away the key. His money and possesions should go to his victims.

When this first happened I thought it was possible that someone else was using his computer, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
