Boy Scout leader to face child porn charges after feds find nude boy photos on his computer

Boy Scout Leader charged for Child Porn
Frank Berta, a local Boy Scout leader and employee of the federal government, is facing child pornography charges. Federal agents discovered the photos on his work computer. The work computer was apparently used to access pornography and “boy lover” Web sites, according to an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Detroit. It is not clear if the incident was discovered as part of an FBI investigation targeting pedophiles, records show.

Agents also found photographs of nude and partially clothed pubescent and pre-pubesecent boys on Bertram’s work computer, the affidavit said. Bertram’s home computer also allegedly contained similar child pornography including videos.

Bertram, like any person accused of a similar offense, is in need of the best criminal defense representation. He needs a great, experienced criminal defense lawyer whether he intents to fight the charges or attempt to mitigate any sentence that may be imposed.
