Attorney: Colonel innocent in child porn case

Posted: Updated:
CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

Colonel Robert Rice was arrested earlier this month for possession of child pornography after police were tipped of by his wife.

Rice has 33 years with the United States Army and holds the highest security clearance.

Investigators say they found more than 10,000 photos of children porn on his computer. Rice's attorney, Joseph Caraciolo, says his client is innocent and claims Rice's estranged wife downloaded a malicious program to Rice's computer that can download files and information including child porn remotely.

Caraciolo says Rice is innocent, but his career and reputation is beyond repair.

Rice posted bail and his preliminary hearing is set for May 6.

Cumberland County District Attorney Dave Freed says his office stands by the charges against Rice.
