Back to TopE-mailPrint

Anderson attorney Samuel Hasler is still waiting to see if his plea agreement regarding child pornography charges will be accepted.

Hasler, who was arrested in March for two counts of distributing child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography, entered a plea agreement in U.S. District Court in May. He also resigned from the bar that month.

In his plea agreement, Hasler agreed to plead guilty to knowingly transporting child pornography by means of a computer and knowingly possessing child pornography.

Mary Bippus, spokeswoman for the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana, said the probation department is still reviewing the agreement and there may be a decision made in September.

According to the agreement, Hasler may be imprisoned between five and 20 years for distributing the pornography on his computer and up to 10 years in prison on the possession charge. Both counts could include a fine of up to $250,000 and a term of supervised release for up to five years.
