MASURY, Ohio (WYTV) – A Masury man is facing 20 charges related to a child pornography investigation.
Stephen Sample, 42, was arrested Tuesday after a secret indictment by the Trumbull County grand jury. He is charged with 20 counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor.
The Ohio Attorney General’s Crimes Against Children Unit searched Sample’s home in February, and electronics were seized. The indictment says several porn videos were found involving sex with minor females.
Sample was taken to Trumbull County Jail, but he was released on bond Tuesday. He pleaded not guilty to the charges, and a pretrial hearing was set for 8:30 a.m. August 31 in Trumbull County Court of Common Pleas.
