by Alex Lloyd Gross

Jerry Zweitzig, 71, of Hatboro, Pennsylvania will not be going home any time soon. He will, however, be going to federal prison for making child pornography which is  stemming from an investigation into child sexual abuse of an infant.

According to court records,  Zweitzig  was arrested in May 2019 and charged with five counts of manufacturing and attempted manufacturing of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. Those charges arose from the defendant’s sexual exploitation of a different child over a period of years, his photographing and videotaping of his sexual abuse of that child, and his extensive collection of child pornography involving thousands of other children. Zweitzig pleaded guilty to all of those counts in October 2019.Those charges arose from the defendant’s sexual exploitation of a different child over a period of years, his photographing and videotaping of his sexual abuse of that child, and his extensive collection of child pornography involving thousands of other children.
