FRANKLIN PARK, Pa. - A man accused of having child pornography on his computers will stand trial.

Hart Williams, 28, was in court Wednesday.

“There were at least 58,000 images and videos,” said Deputy Attorney General Tony Marmo.

Williams had worked as the aquatics director at the YMCA in Franklin Park.  He was hired there last year and in August, he was promoted to run the swimming program.

A spokesperson for the YMCA said the YMCA turned over computers Williams had access to at work.  He said they didn’t contain illegal images.

“I know he regrets the fact that these allegations brought the YMCA into a negative light. I know he regrets it because the YMCA does some great things with kids and adults on a daily basis,” said Williams’ attorney Bob Del Greco.

The YMCA spokesperson said a background check was conducted before Williams was hired and nothing came up that indicated potential trouble.

Williams is jailed on $80,000 bond.
