Pa. blood bank worker won't be charged for porn
IRWIN, Pa. (AP) - October 9, 2010 -- Police in a western Pennsylvania town say a blood bank worker won't be charged for accidentally showing gay pornography to high school students during a blood drive presentation last month.
North Huntingdon police Sgt. Jeffrey Bouldin says Westmoreland County prosecutors determined the incident at the Norwin High School assembly didn't amount to a crime. The worker was trying to project a presentation stored on his personal flash computer drive when the porn instead popped onto the screen.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says Central Blood Bank sent a letter explaining the situation to parents and saying the worker violated policies by not having a supervisor review his presentation, and by using a personal computer storage device.
Attorney Peter Payne says he still plans to sue the blood bank on behalf of upset parents in the town about 25 miles east of Pittsburgh.
