Child pornography charges filed against toledo man

Dec. 6, 2012

A Toledo man was charged in a three-count indictment with crimes related to child pornography, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Bruce Omlor, age 49, was charged with one count each of receipt, distribution, and possession of child pornography.

The conduct occurred between June 2009 and April 2012, according to the indictment.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in Cleveland. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Gene Crawford.

This case remains under investigation. If anyone believes they have relevant information about the conduct of this defendant, please contact HSI immediately, in one of two ways:

1. Call the ICE Tip Line: 866-347-2423, which is staffed 24-hours a day;

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
