North Ridgeville man sentenced to 10 years in prison for downloading multiple videos of young children being raped and sexually assaulted

A North Ridgeville man was sentenced to more than 10 years in prison for downloading multiple videos of young children being raped and sexually assaulted.

Dana F. Cain, 49, previously pleaded guilty to distribution of child pornography and possession of a computer that contained child pornography. He was sentenced to 121 months in prison.

Cain downloaded nearly 500 movie files from May 2015 through January 2017. These movies include images of toddlers and young girls being rapes and sexually assaulted, according to court documents.

Cain possessed an Apple Macbook computer at his home on Avon Belden Road in North Ridgeville which contained child pornography, according to court documents.        

"These are cases with real victims, children whose lives will be forever changed because adults assaulted and violated them," U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman, for the Northern District of Ohio, said in a news release. "We will continue to prosecute those who re-victimize these children by sharing and downloading these images."

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael A. Sullivan following an investigation by the FBI, the North Ridgeville Police Department, the Avon Police Department and the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
