A pediatric dentist with an office in Framingham was arraigned this week on charges of possession of child pornography for images allegedly found on his laptop computer, said Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone.
He plead not guilty on the charges.
The District Attorney's office requested that the defendant be held on $25,000 cash bail with the following conditions: commit no crimes, have no contact with children under 18, no unsupervised contact with his own child, no employment or volunteer work with children under 18, no computer or Internet use, and wear a GPS monitor and check in with probation.
The Framingham District Court judge disagreed and ruled the pediatric dentist could continue to treat patients in his Framingham office, while the case continues through the court system.
Do you agree with the judge? If your child had an appointment with this dentist, would you keep it?
