Jerry Sandusky Investigation Led to Child Porn Email Firings

While Jerry Sandusky was being investigated for child abuse at Penn State, some who worked on the case were allegedly exchanging pornographic emails depicting children and elderly women, according to the state's attorney general.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane told CNN in an interview that aired Tuesday her investigation that already ensnared a state Supreme Court justice and cast a shadow on the state police commissioner, has stalled because she is under a gag order in another case.

Kane told CNN that the court order is from an investigation by a special prosecutor into whether her office breached grand jury secrecy when it gave documents about a 2009 investigation to the Philadelphia Daily News.

She said the pornographic email scandal reached to the state's Supreme Court, where Justice Seamus McCafferty was alleged to have received and shared the emails, according to the Morning Call. He retired from the court last month.

The Associated Press reported that McCaffery was suspended by the other Supreme Court justices before he retired after he informed them that he sent or received 234 of the emails.

"When I saw (the emails), they literally took my breath away," Kane told CNN. "They are deplorable, hard core, graphic sometimes violent emails that had a string of videos and pictures depicting sometimes children, old women, some of them involved violent sexual acts against women."

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported last week that Kane fired four people, two others will be fired and two others have resigned in another office in the ongoing pornographic email investigation. Kane said in a statement that she identified 31 workers through an internal review whose emails contained sexually explicit content, although she didn't say when the messages were sent.

Her office said it identified another 30 workers who participated in pornographic e-mail exchanges between 2008 and 2012, reported the Inquirer. The newspaper said the 61 employees were nearly 10 percent of the 750 workers in the office.
