Kaitlin Plascjak Arrested On Child Porn Charges

IMPERIAL (KDKA) — An Imperial woman has been arrested on child pornography charges.

28-year-old Kaitlin Plascjak is charged with sexual abuse of children and criminal use of a communication facility.

Detectives became aware of Plascjak’s case when Skype reported child pornography being uploaded from a computer with an IP address connected to her home.

Plascjak allegedly told police the child porn was a “coping mechanism because she was molested when she was younger,” WPXI writes, adding that police say the woman had admitted the crime.

The FBI task force received a cyber-tip in August that led them to Plascjak’s mobile home, where she lived with her mother, WPXI writes. She was arrested late last month.

Plascjak is the first woman to be arrested and charged with child porn in Allegheny County in 16 years, WPXI adds.
