John Duffy, a local ESPN radio commentator, is facing child porn charges. Not the way to make headlines there, John.
The P-G says that:
Mr. Duffy is a weekend news anchor and previously worked with ESPN national radio as a local correspondent.
He also has worked in the past as the Pitt basketball pressbox announcer, doing pressbox work at Steelers home game and public address occasionally for the Penguins.
Mr. Duffy also previously did the broadcast of the WPIAL football championships.
He is accused of having pictures and videos of child porn on his computer. I’m not getting in to all that nasty stuff. He was released on $50,000 bond. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Patrick Duffy, he is not.
