Immediate judgment for the 71-year-old arrested less than a month ago for producing child pornography
PISA. Immediate judgment, without the preliminary hearing before the judge, for the Pisan pensioner arrested under house arrest on charges of producing child pornography videos, aggravated sexual violence, solicitation of a minor and interference in private life. A process with instant times for Vito Ardito, 71, Pisan living in Cascina, arrested at the end of September after an investigation by the mobile team triggered by the material found during a search in October 2020 that had already ended with the man’s house arrest. The proceedings ended in June with an abbreviated sentence (appeal pending) of 2 years and 4 months with the acknowledgment of the slight extent of the fact, a groping of the private parts.
Now the other judicial tile that comes from the Florence Public Prosecutor’s Office and from the DDA competent for the type of crime alleged to the 71-year-old. Defended by the lawyer Massimo Parenti, the accused has 15 days to ask to be judged with an abbreviated procedure which provides for the reduction of one third of the sentence and the possibility of appealing.
Five girls accuse him at the time of the juvenile facts, from 2015 to 2020. There are two videos seized by the police in which two 15-16 year old boys are seen having sex in the bedroom of the house made available by the pensioner. The intimacy scenes had been filmed from a series of hidden micro-cameras. The contents were not disclosed, but ended up in a personal archive discovered by investigators. In parallel, other girls, after the first one who was compensated and did not take a civil party, turned to the Pisan police revealing gestures and approaches considered harassing. The photos of the minors found in the pensioner’s home were the starting point for the development of the second line of the investigation. The 71-year-old used WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram to hang out with the girls. And what he wrote, police headquarters, was more than expressed in sexual allusions. The flattery became compliments at times inappropriate and in two the girls to develop cases via chat even sexual acts at the pensioner. In two circumstances the approaches, from verbal, have passed to contact, with groping of the private parts of the victims. The charge of producing child pornography, for sex between minors filmed in the house transformed into a red light set, provides for sentences of between six and 12 years.
