PERVERT ARMY LTC GETS EIGHT YEARS IN PRISON
© 2017 MilitaryCorruption.com
The affable light colonel was married and highly respected by co-workers at Fort Gordon, Ga. where he was deputy director of the Cyber Center For Excellence. Now they know the rest of the story - he's a pervert and child porn afficionado.
The 49 year-old computer whiz apparently felt he could satisfy his sick compulsion to view youngsters in sexual poses on his personal computer and no one would be the wiser. But he got caught anyway.
Jon Hurwitz was nabbed by a member of the Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Both photos and films of minors, ages 9 to 15, were discovered on computers in the residence of the career colonel. Some 65 child porn files were seized in the home raid.
SICK COMPULSION RUINS
Hurwitz was sentenced in U.S. District Court by Chief Judge J. Randal Hall who imposed a $1,500 fine and $5,000 special assessment. But it was the nine years in the slammer that got everyone's attention. The judge threw the book at the senior officer for being part of a child porn-sharing ring.
The guilty field-grade didn't offer much of an explanation why he would engage in such disgusting conduct. He realized the authorities had him dead to rights on the crime. The evidence was all there, despite Hurwitz's clumsy attempts to conceal his crimes.
Following the advice of his lawyer, Hurwitz pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing child porn. It did him no good. The 20-year Army veteran ends up behind bars for a good, long time, can kiss good-bye his pension, and goes from being a lieutenant. colonel to just another "fish" arriving at the DB in Kansas.
