BREAKING NEWS: John Duffy Does His Best Gary Glitter Impersonation

PSAMP HAS MOVED! CLICK HERE TO GET TO THE BRAND NEW SITE! NOW!

John Duffy, a local ESPN radio commentator, is facing child porn charges. Not the way to make headlines there, John.

The P-G says that:

Mr. Duffy is a weekend news anchor and previously worked with ESPN national radio as a local correspondent.

He also has worked in the past as the Pitt basketball pressbox announcer, doing pressbox work at Steelers home game and public address occasionally for the Penguins.

Mr. Duffy also previously did the broadcast of the WPIAL football championships.

He is accused of having pictures and videos of child porn on his computer. I'm not getting in to all that nasty stuff. He was released on $50,000 bond. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Patrick Duffy, he is not.

UPDATE: Prior image from this post has been removed. Jason from the Trib spoke with posecutors, who informed him that said picture was incorrect. Jason's article is here. Apparently, John Duffy's image is nowhere to be found on the information superhighway.

The above photograph is NOT the John Duffy that was indicted. It should really be removed immediately.

Yes...its down. This site (http://www.ptupdate.com/about.htm) lists the man in the photo as John Duffy, the local sports reporter. Apparently, that site is horribly mistaken. I apologize to whoever that man was.

Gentleman: I am the John Duffy who owns the PTupdate.com website, and evidently had his picture posted here. I have been a commentator on the Saturday morning ESPN golf show, and serve as director & physical therapist at the NovaCare South Hills Sports Medicine Clinic in Scott...just a few miles from where this guy lives in Carnegie

Far too many similarities have created a real mess, especially for parents of children I have treated, and of course my patients themselves. I ask that everybody be sensitive to this, and help make clear the distinction between the two John Duffy's. Attached is an article the Trib published today, which hopefully assists in damage control:
