Police: ‘Bored’ worker downloaded child porn at Beaver Valley Nuclear Power Station

Police say a western Pennsylvania nuclear plant worker downloaded hundreds of child pornography pictures because he was bored.

FirstEnergy Corp. tells the Beaver County Timesthe company promptly reported the images when they were found in October 2013, and fired the worker from the Beaver Valley Nuclear Power Station three days later.

The state police Bureau of Criminal Investigation says 51 printed images of children ages 10 to 16 were found in Raymond Fischer Jr.’s open locker, and hundreds more on his work computer.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Fischer and The Associated Press could not immediately locate a phone number for the Harmony resident.

He faces a preliminary hearing Oct. 13. It wasn’t immediately clear why authorities waited two years to file the charges.
