JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A Wrangell doctor is standing trial this week on child pornography charges.

The Juneau Empire reports (https://bit.ly/1LxOSUC) Assistant U.S. Attorney Leslie Fischer said in court this week that Greg Salard found, downloaded and shared videos that included footage of adult men molesting toddlers.

Assistant Federal Public Defender Cara MacNamara argued in court that the government can’t prove Salard possessed or distributed child pornography.

FBI Special Agent Anthony Peterson was set to testify for the prosecution on Thursday.

Fischer says Peterson found the illegal material was uploaded through a file-sharing program from a computer registered to Salard.



MacNamara said an FBI agent misinterpreted the software.

Salard faces an aggravated rape charge in Louisiana, where he’s expected to be extradited to following the Juneau trial’s conclusion.
