A former Juneau Boys and Girls Club instructor charged with six counts of possessing child pornography will soon be on his way to a Pennsylvania clinic specializing in sexual addictions.
Jeffrey Malley, 29, asked Juneau Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg on Wednesday to amend his bail conditions and allow him to enter the Keystone Center "sex offender program" in Chester, Pa., next week to begin treatment.
"He can be in a bed on March 25," said Malley's attorney, Louis Menendez.
Following a tip from Malley's ex-girlfriend, Juneau police raided his David Street home last August and confiscated hundreds of videos and photographs of children, as young as 12, engaged in various sex acts ranging from "lewd touching" to sadomasochism.
Some of the images were found on a portable hard drive allegedly stolen from the Boys and Girls club. Malley was fired within days of his arrest.
Earlier this month Malley filed a request to change his not-guilty plea. Details of his plea agreement with the Juneau District Attorney's Office will become public during the change of plea hearing, tentatively set for May 14.
Menendez said Malley's treatment at Keystone will last six to eight weeks. Ultimately, how long he remains depends on his progress, Menendez said.
Last spring another of Menendez's clients, convicted sex offender Naval Cmdr. Robert Schetky, was treated in the same clinic following a plea agreement with the Juneau District Attorney's office, which settled on a single charge of attempted sexual abuse of a minor after multiple instances of abuse of a 12-year-old girl.
Juneau police lead investigator Sgt. Dave Campbell said no local victims have been identified or come forward in the Malley case.
The child pornography seems to have existed previously and come from the Internet, he said.
