Man accused of child porn possession back in court before next week's trial

Posted:

PRINCETON, W. Va (WVVA)-- John Spaulding, accused of child porn possession in Mercer County, appeared in court Monday to discuss evidence to be used in his upcoming trial next week.

You may recall that Spaulding's last trial was declared a "mistrial" after a juror said she couldn't continue during deliberation.

Monday, prosecutors asked permission to use in the new trial, additional images of child porn said to have been found on Spaulding's computer.

Spaulding's attorney maintains these images did not belong to Spaulding, although they were on his laptop.

Judge William Sadler ruled that the prosecution can present these additional images as evidence, but attorneys can not specify before a jury the amount of pictures they say were found on Spaulding's computer.
