Former Wayne County doctor gets nearly 22 years in prison for child porn

Local News

A former Wayne County pediatrician has been sentenced to nearly 22 years in federal prison on child porn charges.

Dr. David Blasczak was arrested in January after FBI agents said his credit card number was found on a child porn website. Prosecutors said the doctor had paid for ten compressed folders containing hundreds of images and videos of child porn.

Even more disturbing, further allegations were made that the doctors paid parents to take photos of their children, which the doctor claimed was for independent research.

After the arrest, our affiliate RochesterFirst.com learned of other incidents where the doctor was accused of inappropriately interacting with children.

The doctor pleaded guilty to charges in August.

As part of the sentence, if the doctor outlives his sentence, which even the judge admitted was unlikely, he will be forced to serve ten years of post-release supervision.
