June 11, 2014

A Youngstown man was sentenced to 90 years in prison for exploiting children and distributing visual depictions of minors in sexually explicit conduct, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Christopher Cavna, 27, had children engage in sexually explicit conduct in 2013 and then distributed images of that conduct.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael A. Sullivan following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Mahoning Valley Violent Crimes Task Force and the Ohio Adult Parole Authority.
