Former Toledo teacher sentenced to six year in prison for child pornography crime

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sept. 9, 2013

A Toledo man was sentenced today to more than six years in prison for receipt of child pornography, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Bruce Omlor, age 50, was sentenced to 75 months in prison after pleading guilty earlier this year to one count each of receipt of child pornography. The conduct occurred between June 2009 and April 2012, according to court documents.

“This sentence should send a warning to those that would become involved with child pornography,” Dettelbach said.

“Today’s sentencing emphasizes the serious consequences that await those who are engaged in any way with child pornography,” said William Hayes, acting special agent in charge of HSI Detroit, which covers Michigan and Ohio. “This case was particularly troubling because of Mr. Omlor’s position of public trust as an educator. HSI will continue to work closely with its law enforcement partners to protect our children and ensure that online predators feel the full weight of the law.”

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.
