UPDATE: Former Political Candidate Waives Right to Preliminary Hearing on Child Porn Charges

Jan 24, 2013 -- 8:25am

Former political candidate 62-year-old Richard Korn waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday in the New Castle County of Common Pleas.

Korn is charged with 25 counts of dealing in child pornography; police began investigating Korn last month.

Two weeks ago, officers seized several computers from Korn’s home which contained images of child porn; he’s behind bars today at the Howard R. Young Correctional Institute, being held in lieu of $750,000 bail.

The Hockessin resident has on numerous occasions sought public office in Delaware, including New Castle County executive in 2004, state House in 2006 and state auditor in 2010.
