Lee County judge withholds verdict in first-time child porn charge

A Fort Myers man was sentenced to five years of state probation and continued mental health treatment on charges of unlawful use of two-way communications.

Andrew David Mackoul, 28, arrested in January 2020, also faced a count of possession of child pornography that was filed March 21 as not prosecuted.

He pleaded guilty to a third-degree felony and signed a felony plea agreement in March. 

“I’m very mindful of the seriousness of the charges,” Lee County Circuit Judge J. Frank Porter said during Wednesday’s sentencing. “And I am in no way indicating Mr. Mackoul’s condition is an excuse or makes it permissible for someone to do what he did. However, it does play into my decision-making process … whether or not I should adjudicate him guilty.”
