Man faces child porn charges in break-in at radio station


A federal prosecutor once told a judge that Robert Blakeslee had a “black belt in child sexual exploitation.”

The Williamsport man, who is serving a two-year prison term for violating his supervised release on a child pornography sentence, has been indicted again.

Blakeslee, 65, is charged with three counts of receiving and possessing child pornography. One of the counts returned Thursday by a U.S. Middle District grand jury alleges he had more than 600 illegal computer images.

Wayne P. Samuelson offered his “black belt” description last year when Blakeslee was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Yvette Kane on the release-condition violations.

Those violations, as well as the new charges, stem from a March 31, 2006, break-in at radio station WLYC in South Williamsport, where Blakeslee formerly worked. He allegedly used a computer there to download child pornography and to try to lure a 14-year-old girl to Florida.

Blakeslee is no stranger to Kane’s courtroom and child pornography allegations:

  • In 2004, Kane sentenced Blakeslee to 6 months in prison and 30 months’ supervised release for violating terms of his supervision. He had associated with a child without permission and possessed pornographic or sexually stimulating material.
  • In 2005, Blakeslee again violated release terms, and Kane sentenced him to six months in jail and two years’ supervised release.
  • He likely will be prosecuted before Kane on the latest charges.
