Lisbon man indicted for child pornography crimes

A Lisbon man was indicted for child pornography crimes.

David Grunden, 34, of Lisbon, was indicted on one count each of receipt of child pornography, possession of child pornography and advertising child pornography.

Grunden, between 2014 and 2017, received numerous images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, and possessed  a computer with child pornography on October 30, 2018, according to the indictment.

From January 11 through June 3, 2018, Grunden solicited adults to be recorded having sex with children, according to court documents.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian Deckert following an investigation by the FBI, the Mahoning Valley Violent Crimes Task Force and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  The defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
