Former Radnor Township Board Of Commissioners President Indicted

PHILADELPHIA – The federal indictment against Philip Ahr, a/k/a “DaddyX” and “DaddyXX,” of Radnor, Delaware County, PA, was unsealed today in federal court.  The indictment charges Ahr with two counts of distribution of child pornography, two counts of receipt of child pornography, and one count of possession of child pornography, all stemming from his trafficking in hundreds of images and videos of child pornography on the Internet.  The indictment charges Ahr with committing these crimes for almost three years, beginning in 2013. 

Ahr’s initial appearance in federal court was held today.  The Honorable Lynne A. Sitarski detained him on the Government’s request pending a detention hearing scheduled for February 26, 2018. 

If convicted, Ahr faces a statutory maximum sentence of 100 years’ incarceration, a 5-year mandatory minimum sentence of imprisonment, 5 years up to a lifetime of supervised release, a $1,250,000 fine, and $10,500 in special assessments. 

The case was investigated by the FBI, Task Force Officer Kenneth Bellis and Special Agent Jennifer Morrow, in conjunction with the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office and the Internet Crimes Against Children Unit (ICAC).  It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michelle Rotella.
