Zocco child pornography trial comes to an end

Although the defense team for Kris Zocco, charged with possession of child pornography, advocated for a dismissal of the charges against him, Zocco was found guilty by a jury on November 13, FOX6 reported.

Zocco was believed to be the last person to see Kelly Dwyer, a woman from Milwaukee who disappeared over a year ago. Although Zocco was never formally charged in relation to Dwyer’s disappearance, an investigation of his house revealed a hard drive filled with sexually explicit content, most of which included child pornography.

Zocco’s legal counsel told the court that the prosecution could not prove that it was Zocco who owned the files, and his computer itself had no evidence of pornography on it. Zocco will be sentenced in January.
