Kiddie Porn Defendant In Pa. Wants Clinical Words Banned

By Allan Lengel

In one of the more unusual motions to be filed in a federal court, a lawyer representing a man accused of dealing in kiddie porn has asked that the words “vagina” and “genitalia” be banned from trial.
Attorney Ashish S. Joshi filed the motion last week in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia on behalf of his client Patrick Bunty, who is accused of “transporting in foreign commerce six visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct”, according to court documents.
Joshi insisted in the motion that making reference to certain parts of the anatomy would “prejudice the jury, inflame their passions and violate the Defendant’s right to a trial by an impartial jury…”
In his six-page motion, he also referred to a certain segment of the population as “every owner of a vagina and any person who has ever visited a vagina”.
Federal prosecutors have yet to file a response to the Oct. 1 motion.
