May 13, 2013

A Dennison man was sentenced to nearly 22 years in prison for crimes related to the production and distribution of child pornography, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Vernon L. Kriner, Jr., 43, pleaded guilty earlier this year to child exploitation, possession of child pornography and two counts of receipt and distribution of visual depictions of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

U.S. District Judge Patricia A. Gaughan sentenced Kriner to 262 months in prison.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michael A. Sullivan following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
