Wade Rowland Sanders – Guilty Child Porn – But he didn’t really mean it

Wade Rowland Sanders, a California lawyer who was an adviser to California’s lieutenant governor and served in the Clinton administration, pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of possessing child pornography, reported the San Diego Union Tribune.

Sanders admitted in federal court in San Diego of having 600 images of minors, including a 21-minute video that depicted girls engaging in sex acts with an adult man, according to a statement from U.S. Attorney Karen Hewitt.

He was arrested by the authorities on November 7.

“I have no sexual attraction to children whatsoever,” Sanders said. “There was no evil intent.”

The illegal download was discovered as part of a nationwide initiative called Project Safe Childhood, a multi-agency program that began in 2006, the U.S. Attorney’s statement said.

Sentencing is scheduled for March 30. Sanders could get up to 10 years in prison and be ordered to pay a $250,000 fine. Minimum sentence for the charge is five years with supervised release for his lifetime and registration as a sex offender, the prosecutor said.
