The California judge, who was under fire for giving a light sentence to a Stanford University swimmer has recused himself from making his first key decision in another sex-crime case.
Santa Clara County Judge Aaron Persky filed a statement with the court saying that some might doubt his impartiality.
The judge has been criticized after he sentenced former Stanford swimmer Brock Turner, 20, to six months in jail for sexually assaulting an intoxicated woman who passed out behind a trash bin after a fraternity party.
Persky was scheduled this week to consider a request from Robert Chain to reduce his conviction for possessing child pornography from a felony to a misdemeanor. Last year, the judge said he could consider the idea if the plumber stayed sober.
