Ex-Infoseek exec Patrick Naughton will not be allowed out of jail for Christmas, a US judge has ruled. Naughton was arrested in September for trying to solicit sex with a 13-year-old girl. Child porn pictures were also found on his laptop. Last Thursday he was taken away from court in handcuffs after being found guilty of possession of child porn. The jury remains undecided on the other two counts -- soliciting sex with the underage girl over the Net, and interstate travel to have sex with her. US District Judge Edward Rafeedie refused to free 34-year-old Naughton, leaving him behind bars until his sentencing in March, the Associated Press reported. Before the ruling, lawyers on both sides said they expected 34-year-old Naughton to be released on $100,000 bail pending sentence. ® Related Stories Disney exec found guilty in pedo sting Child sex Disney exec admitted offence Porno hacker fingered by AOpen
