Perrysburg man found guilty of sexual offenses


John D. McCrory, 49, of Perrysburg, has been found guilty of 11 sexual offenses after pleading guilty to
one charge and no contest to 10 others before Wood County Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Pollex this
He was originally charged with rape in relation to a June 22, 2008 incident after making contact with a
female through a Web site. His posting specified no sex, but when the victim, who was 19 at the time,
arrived at his Perrysburg home, he was alleged to have made contact with her. On a motion from Heather
Baker, an assistant Wood County prosecutor, the charge was amended to gross sexual imposition. McCrory
pleaded guilty to the amended charge.
Subsequent search warrants included seizure of his computer where hundreds of pornographic images and
videos were found. Some were deemed to depict minors. He was indicted in May on a separate case of 14
counts of pandering sexually oriented material of a minor.The state, through a plea agreement, will
dismiss four of the those charges at sentencing, with McCrory pleading no contest to the other 10
counts. Pollex found him guilty based on his plea and information provided by Baker.
Baker is recommending 18 months in prison on the gross sexual imposition charge, a fourth-degree felony;
and a total of 12 years in prison for the pandering charges, all second-degree felonies which carry a
maximum of eight years on each count.
Pollex ordered a pre-sentence investigation. Sentencing is set for Nov. 3 at 3:30 p.m.
McCrory remains free on a $100,000 cash bond.
