"Porno man" pleads no contest to making obscene phone call
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- A Cranston man has pleaded no contest to making an obscene phone call to the emergency 9-1-1 service. Kenneth Iasimone has been dubbed "Porno Man" by E-9-1-1 agents accustomed to his calls. State police say Iasimone made more than 18-hundred calls last summer, although he was charged with only one. Iasimone made the calls from a cell phone he bought using the name Tony Soprano, according to police. A typical call allegedly would feature some dirty language and the sound of a pornographic movie playing in the background. Police used G-P-S technology to figure out where the cell phone's signal originated. Iasimone received a one-year suspended prison sentence and probation after pleading last Friday.
