Elizabeth man convicted in child porn case
An Elizabeth man has been sentenced to more than 15 years in prison for producing child pornography materials.
According to evidence presented by Assistant United States Attorney Shaun E. Sweeney, William H. Randolph sexually assaulted two girls - ages 7 and 11 - at his Elizabeth residence several times during the summer of 2000.
The girls were permitted to visit Randolph at his home that summer because he was a family friend, according to the U.S. Attorney's office.
The girls, who are cousins, did not tell their family about the sexual assaults until investigators from Allegheny County Police, United States Postal Inspection Service and the FBI searched Randolph's residence in September of 2000.
That search yielded a videotape and numerous Polaroid photographs depicting Randolph engaged in various sexual acts with the girls.
According to the U.S Attorney's office, investigators later recovered an audiocassette tape in which the man can be heard coaxing one of the girls into discussing sexual acts that he wanted the two to engage in.
