A Nebraska judge has ordered a psychological examination for a man accused of creating, possessing and intending to distribute child pornography.
The York News-Times report that Judge Alan Gless deemed the evaluation necessary before the case against Jack Knight moves forward. The ruling came at the request of Knight's attorney. York County Attorney Bill Sutter did not object.
Knight was arrested in August after two people allegedly found sexually explicit photos on his digital camera. Investigators say the photos were obscene and pornographic images of minors. He also
has been charged with sexual assault of a child.
Knight will be evaluated at the Lincoln Regional Center, and his
Jan. 25 trial may be delayed.
Knight faces a maximum 35-year prison sentence if convicted. He
has pleaded not guilt
