James Fugh, 41, pleas guilty in 80 count child porn case-gets probation

James Fugh, 41, charged with 80 felonies related to a child pornography investigation, pleaded guilty in Butler County Court Tuesday.

The plea agreement calls for a sentence of 24 months of probation, fines and court costs.

Fugh was initially charged with 80 felony counts, including 10 counts of sexual abuse of children; 10 counts of photographing, videotaping, depicting on computer or filming sexual acts; 10 counts of unlawful contact with a minor; 50 counts of child pornography; and 10 counts of criminal use of a communication facility after an investigation by the Northwest Computer Crime Task Force of the state police.

Adams Township police transferred the case to the task force after a report of a man having an online relationship with a 16-year-old girl, according to court records. Police said Fugh had a relationship with a girl from Canada from May 2014 to July 2015. She was 15 years old during the relationship, when they exchanged nude images.

When confronted, police said Fugh admitted to the relationship and turned over a flash drive and his computer. While examining Fugh’s computer, police say they also discovered hundreds of sexually explicit videos showing girls between the ages of 8 and 12 years old.

  1. 24 months of probation? Really now? Can someone please explain how this freak bargained that deal? Better yet, are there judges voted in on terms or is it a job for life ? I know one here that needs replaced.

  2. I’ve rethought my first reply, and the judge, even though he’s a total Moran, can only rule on what the district attorneys office presses. I think ol Goldinger and the rest of the hen house need to go. Hell, you’ve got life made here in Butler Co. if you’re a junkie or a pervert. But don’t have 1 too many beers or they’ll pin you to a cross . But that’s right, it’s all about the money.

  3. This is insane! How does a judge justify this?! This man had hundreds of child pornography not only on his computer but also STORED AWAY on memory sticks. Has anybody thought of that Canadian girl? She was clearly taken advantaged of.
