Babysitter convicted of child pornography charge
DAYTON, Mar 09, 2013 (Dayton Daily News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
A Ludlow Falls man accused of producing sexually explicit videos of children he babysat then trying to trade them online will spend at least 20 years in federal prison, under a plea agreement reached this week.
Kevin D. Todd, 41, pleaded guilty to one count of sexual exploitation of children Thursday before U.S. District Judge Timothy S. Black, who set sentencing for July 11.
Terms of the plea agreement calls for Todd to spend between 20 years and 25 years in prison.
"Sexual exploitation of children by someone who has the responsibility of caring for them is a crime that merits swift, sure punishment," said Carter M. Stewart, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio. "I want to encourage anyone with any information involving any other possible victims of exploitation to call local law enforcement."
In November 2012, an undercover investigator with the Franklin County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) responded to an ad Todd posted on the internet seeking people looking for "taboo," according to court documents.
Through a series of emails, Todd asked the investigator to meet and trade videos and pictures of child pornography. They arranged a meeting for Nov. 24 and officers arrested Todd when he arrived. Todd has been held without bond since his arrest.
Investigators found DVDs and other storage media containing pornographic videos and photos in Todd's car. Forensic examination found that Todd had produced the videos of the minor females between August 2010 and November 2012 in the bathroom of his residence, according to court documents.
