Lorain Man Sentenced to More Than 14 Years in Prison for Possession of Child Pornography

CLEVELAND - Dylan T. Flanigan, 49, of Lorain, Ohio, was sentenced on Wednesday, September 7, 2022, to more than 14 years in prison by U.S. District Judge Donald C. Nugent after he previously pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

According to court documents, in February 2019, law enforcement investigators executed a search warrant at Flanigan’s Lorain residence after receiving information that he was in possession of child pornography. 

During the search, investigators found multiple electronic devices that, upon examination, contained hundreds of images and more than 70 videos of child pornography. 

This case was investigated by the Brunswick Police Department and the Cleveland FBI.  This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Michael A. Sullivan, Kathryn Gaughan Andrachik and Margaret A. Kane
