Former Napoleon police officer sentenced to two years in prison for possessing child pornography

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

A former Napoleon police officer was sentenced to two years in prison for child pornography crimes.

Nicholas Evanoff, 34, previously pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

“These are cases with real victims, children whose lives will be forever changed because adults assaulted and violated them,” U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman said. “We will continue to work to prosecute those who re-victimize these children by sharing and downloading these images.”

Evanoff possessed the child pornography in 2017. He also smashed two hard drives in an effort to destroy evidence and hide his crimes, according to court documents.

The investigating agency in this case is the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracey Ballard Tangeman.
