A new sentencing date has been set for an Ohio pediatric doctor who pleaded guilty to accessing child pornography.
Federal Judge James Graham on Wednesday scheduled sentencing for June 26. That follows a postponement earlier this month to give defense attorneys more time to gather additional character witnesses to testify about Pelloski's work against childhood brain cancer.
Pelloski's attorneys say he compensated for his childhood by becoming an overachiever but also dealt with stress by abusing alcohol.
Federal prosecutors are seeking a four-year prison sentence. They say Pelloski's conduct went back several years and involved disturbing images.
