Two men from Northeast Ohio were both sentenced to more than eight years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of inducing a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of that conduct, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Randall S. Allman, 38, of Strongsville, and Shawn M. Kadras, 34, of Cleveland, on two occasions in February 2013, did persuade, induce, entice and coerce a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of the conduct, according to the indictment.

Kadras was sentenced to 110 months in prison while Allman was sentenced to 97 months in prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michael A. Sulivan following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Safe Streets Task for and the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
