Ex-doctor pleads guilty to distributing child porn

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A former Harrisburg doctor has pleaded guilty to distributing child pornography.

David H. Scanlan III, a former physician-in-training in pediatric oncology at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, entered the plea Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Harrisburg.

Scanlan was charged last week.

U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III accepted the plea, but told Scanlan that his agreement with prosecutors is not binding on the court and that he can sentence Scanlan up to the maximum of 20 years in federal prison, according to U.S. Attorney Peter Smith.

Scanlan was released pending sentencing, but was ordered confined to his residence in Virginia under electronic monitoring.
