Toledo Man Charged with Receiving and Distributing Child Pornography

An indictment was unsealed today charging a Toledo man with crimes related to child pornography, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Dennis Orzechowski, 50, is charged with receiving and distributing child pornography between March 2014 and April 2014 and possessing child pornography on September 11, 2014.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, and the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the United States Secret Service, Toledo Resident Agency, and the Sylvania Police Department.  The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Noah P. Hood.

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