Joseph Leitner Loses House for Possession of Child Porn

A man who admitted to possessing thousands of images of child pornography will lose his house as punishment for the crime.

Federal prosecutors say 62-year old Joseph Leitner pleaded guilty to one count of receiving child pornography and agreed to forfeit his Lexington house.

The US Attorney says agents found more than 30-thousand images of child pornography inside the house on Cochran Road in Chevy Chase when they raided it last year.

They say the house is being seized because of the high volume of images and length of time Leitner used it to download and view the images.
