CINCINNATI – Timothy Lawrence Andriot, 39, of Madeira, Ohio pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to two counts of production of child pornography. Under terms of the plea agreement, Andriot will spend 25 years in prison.
Carter M. Stewart, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, Kevin Cornelius, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Cincinnati Field Office (FBI), the Regional Electronics Computer Investigations (RECI) in Sheriff Jim Neil’s Office, Madeira Police Chief Frank Maupin, and other agencies in the Greater Cincinnati Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force announced the pleas entered today before Chief U.S. District Judge Susan Dlott.
According to court documents, Madeira Police and the Hamilton County Jobs and Family Services were investigating allegations that Andriot had sexually abused two minors in June 2013. Forensic examination by RECI of Andriot’s computers recovered images that Andriot had created of him sexually abusing two minor children.
Andriot was arrested on a criminal complaint on November 13, 2013. He has been in custody since his arrest and will remain in custody until sentencing.
The plea agreement also recommends that Andriot be placed under court supervision for the rest of his life. However the court may reconsider the length of supervised release after Andriot has been under court supervision for at least ten years following his release from prison. While under court supervision, Andriot must register as a sex offender anywhere that he lives, works or goes to school. Judge Dlott will review the terms of the plea agreement and set a date for sentencing.
