Two men have been indicted for alleged pandering obscenity involving a minor or impaired person. One faces 12 charges.
A Wood County grand jury on Wednesday indicted Kyle Bernath, 19, Perrysburg, for 12 counts pandering.
Eleven of the charges are second-degree felonies. From Jan. 2 to Feb. 27, he is accused of creating, reproducing or publishing obscene material that had a minor as one of its participants or portrayed observers.
During this same time, Bernath allegedly bought, procured or possessed obscene material that had a minor as a participant. This is the fourth-degree felony.
The grand jury also indicted Jeffrey Alan Daniels, 45, of Heath, for two counts pandering. His charges include one second-degree felony and one fourth-degree felony.
On June 6, he allegedly participated in presenting an obscene performance that had a minor as one of its participants and on that day also bought, procured or possessed obscene material that had a minor as one of its participants.
Bernath and Daniels also were indicted for possessing criminal tools, both fifth-degree felonies.
Law enforcement seized electronic devices which were instrumental in Bernath allegedly committing the offense. The devices are subject to forfeiture.
Daniels reportedly had possession of a cell phone with the alleged obscene images.
