No jail time for ex-YMCA employee found with child porn at work

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — A now-former YMCA lifeguard has avoided jail time after pleading guilty to possessing child pornography on a work computer.

27-year-old Isaac Lengacher was arrested in August of 2019 after YMCA employees told police they found images of child pornography on a company computer.

At Lengacher's hearing on Monday, he was sentenced to serve 2 years and 183 days on probation with no added jail time by Judge Wendy Davis.

Court documents say Lengacher was working as a lifeguard and swim instructor at a Fort Wayne YMCA when police received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about him.

YMCA employees allegedly told police that inappropriate images of children were opened on Lengacher’s email account.

Police say they immediately notified the YMCA Senior District Executive Director, and Lengacher was fired immediately. 

YMCA CEO Marty Pastura said at the time of the arrest, Lengacher worked at the YMCA for about two years and underwent the same vetting process and background checks that are required for all employees.

Pastura said he believed it was an isolated incident and there have been no other reports regarding inappropriate behavior.
