D.C. child doctor sentenced for possession of child porn

A longtime D.C. pediatrician was sentenced to 18 months in prison for possession of child pornography.

The arrest of 74-year-old Dr. Robert Paul Dickey at his home office in May shocked the Fort Dupont Park neighborhood in Southeast Washington. Dickey had treated children there for decades.

In addition to prison, Dickey also will be required to register as a sex offender for 15 years.

According to prosecutors, law enforcement officers received a “cyber tip” from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that Dickey had uploaded 14 images of child porn onto his computer.

Investigators served a search warrant at the office and recovered about 132 images of child pornography on various electronic devices.

Dickey pleaded guilty in September to a federal charge of possession of child pornography.
