Ex-NASA Workers Accused of Stashing Kiddie Porn on Federal Computers

Henry K. Lee writes in The San Francisco Chronicle:

Two former NASA officials were indicted by a federal grand jury in San Jose today on charges of possessing child pornography on their government computers.

Christopher Burt Wiltsee, 56, of Morgan Hill and Mark Charles Zelinsky, 56, of San Bruno were named in separate indictments handed down today.

Wiltsee was employed in at the Ames Research Center of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in June 2005 when he possessed images of child pornography on a government computer, the indictment against him said.

Zelinsky was employed at the same facility in August 2005 when he also allegedly had child-pornography images on his government computer, authorities said.

NASA Ames spokesman Mike Mewhinney confirmed today that both men no longer work at the center.
