One of our ninjas posted this on the WOT, but asked me to give it more exposure as a stand-alone article. Must be a some odd trait in the Visconi family, ’cause Frank’s nephew Mark Visconi has been sentenced for child pornography. Read on..

An Air Force colonel who pleaded guilty last year to receiving child pornography was sentenced to five years in prison Friday, the Justice Department said in a release.

Col. Mark Visconi, 48, will follow his prison sentence with 15 years of supervised release, Justice said.

Visconi reached a plea agreement with federal prosecutors in which he admitted to receiving and attempting to receive child pornography online between November 2015 and June 2016. He pleaded guilty Oct. 4.

In an email, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said that Visconi currently is still a colonel in the Air Force. But now that his sentencing is complete, the Air Force will start the process to remove him from service, she said. If approved, she said, this will mean Visconi will not be able to apply for retirement or receive any other benefit for honorable service.

The department said Visconi used an online bulletin board dedicated to sharing child pornography, operating on the anonymous TOR network, to download the images. Visconi also downloaded and viewed numerous child pornography images and videos.

He also admitted taking hundreds of pictures of minor girls’ clothed buttocks with his cell phone, the plea deal said. Justice said some of those pictures appeared to be “upskirt” images, in which the girls were unaware he was photographing them.

Five years, here’s hoping that he “accidentally” gets left among the General Population! There goes his pension as well, may he die lonely and forgotten.

“…the Air Force will start the process to remove him from service…this will mean Visconi will not be able to apply for retirement or receive any other benefit for honorable service.”

A damn shame this pervert was able to keep collecting O-6 pay while his legal case slowly dragged on. Fortunately, he won’t be on the retired pay and benefits gravy train after his five year prison sentence is served.


“collecting 0-6 pay” = O-6 over 30 (2020 rate) = Base pay of $ 12,270.37 monthly = roughly 145K a year that he can kiss good-bye.


He can also apparently kiss goodbye 75% of that for life – assuming he didn’t make GO and had to retire after 30 years commissioned service.

“Couldn’t happen to a more deserving fella.”


Hmmm…interesting. Seems he cared more about his Air Force “career” than he did of his behavior.

And of course, there is always a reason for his behavior:

“Defense attorney Sean Marvin said in a court filing that Visconi was abused at a young age and “has struggled to balance his service to his country with addictive behaviors.” Along with downloading child sex abuse videos online, Visconi admitted taking clandestine photographs of girls in public.”

“In court, Visconi, of suburban Fairfax, Virginia, apologized for not seeking help for his problems earlier, saying he did not want to jeopardize his career.”


They always have a lame excuse, you know.


Fuck him, many people were abused as a child, I know first hand and don’t resort to abusing others.


Some more tidbits:

“In addition to prison, he was sentenced to 15 years of supervised release, ordered to pay restitution to an identified victim and ordered to complete 50 hours of community service.”

“He also must register as a sex offender.”

“Visconi was charged in August 2019 while working at the Pentagon and pleaded guilty in October to the charges. As part of the 50 hours of community service, Visconi, a 1993 graduate of the Air Force Academy, must engage in speaking or writing about his experience and conviction.”


Mark William Visconi, a 1993 Graduate of the Air Force Academy, is currently housed at the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center in Alexandria, Virginia.

His ID Number is A0183168.

Don’t know if he will stay there for the next 5 years or if he will be relocated.

Some of his jail mates may still be there:

I’ll just paraphrase the comment I made when this news FIRST hit the Friday TAH Weekend Open Thread on yesterday past. Hope this beeoytch enjoys being the new kid on the cell block. “…abused at an early age.” “…seeking help for my addiction…”

IMHO this pervert just needs to be strung up…by either his neck or his ‘nads, makes no difference to me. I will donate the rope…or the piano wire.


Hope he gets Epsteined


Now this clown is really smart…
Checking out kiddie porn while working at the Pentagon…
Home of probably one of the worlds most secure areas, filled with people that do nothing but monitor the computers of the people that work there….
Yeppir, one of the real geniuses that serve our country…
My attorney back in the 90’s was arrested for 250K+ kiddie porn pics on his computer that he shared with his kid…
The Wisconsin Bar only put him on suspension for one year.
After that year, he could go back to practicing law….
Well, after he got out of prison….
He was a real shithouse lawyer.


Well, at least THIS Visconi admitted his shortcomings.

Not so much with the OTHER Visconi who probably will go his Grave clinging to his “Bronze Star w/V” and his “Purple Heart”.

Now that I think about it, he may try to initiate Lawsuits against those he sees in the Afterlife, since his frivaleous Lawsuits panned out in his Earthlife (do ya think he may hire DB to represent him?)

“Purple Heart”, wasn’t he the “shot in the lower leg, above the knee” fellow?


Yep… that’s “doorgunner” Frank!

Thanks Doc, I thought it was him.


That picture of him smiling looking over his shoulder… Will that be the look he gives as the line headed by Bubba, Thor and “Tiny” forms at his rear?
