Internet Porn Found In Juvenile Detention Center

CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Officials at the Circleville Juvenile Correctional Facility were trying to determine how inmates managed to download Internet pornography.

Computers in the prison offices and attached school were shut down until investigators had some answers.

Guards found the sexually explicit material during a cell search Feb. 27. Since then, prison officials have been interviewing staff members and students and examining the computer network to determine who had access.

The detention center houses sex offenders up to age 21.

Carol Rapp Zimmerman, deputy director of the Department of Youth Services, said inmates are not supposed to have access to the Internet, but the school offers a computer class.
