Unbelieveable: Well-known pediatrician arrested on child pornography charges! (VIDEO)

I don't know about you, but when I think of the kind of person who would enjoy child pornography I conjure up images of a sick, perverted, and mentally unstable human being. So finding out that a pediatrician has been arrested for receiving child porn is absolutely shocking, to say the least. And, we're not talking just any pediatrician either. Oh no, Dr. Richard Keller is a prominent Boston physician who was medical director at the prestigious boarding school, Phillips Academy, and is a Harvard Medical School pediatrics instructor!

Police seized more than 500 photos and as many as 100 pornographic DVDs featuring naked young boys in a variety of situations from Keller's home, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Boston.

Keller, who has been put on administrative leave at Boston Children's Hospital where he worked as a pediatric endocrinologist, has never had any problems with the law or within the medical field. Although there have been no suggestions that Keller abused any of the children at the prep school he worked for for almost two decades, he did get the child porn DVDs delivered at his school office in more than one occasion. ¡Qué descarado!

It worries me to no end to hear of cases like this because it proves once more that you basically can't trust anybody. I mean, if a well-respected pediatrician is capable of doing something like this, where does that leave us? I guess his case also shows that, like I always like to say, "las apariencias engañan." 

Thankfully, none of his patients or their family members have come forward with complaints or concerns involving Keller. Even so, his obvious addiction to child pornography would make me extremely weary if my child had had any contact with him throughout the years. 

If convicted, Keller faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of 20 years in jail.
