Miami County Man Charged with Producing Child Pornography

DAYTON – A federal grand jury has charged Shawn Bradley, 36, of West Milton, Ohio with producing child pornography in an indictment unsealed here today.

Benjamin C. Glassman, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, Steve Francis, Special Agent in Charge, U.S. Homeland Security Investigations and Miami County Sheriff Dave Duchak announced the charges.

According to the indictment, between May 2015 and February 2018, Bradley coerced a minor into engaging in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing child pornography.

Producing child pornography is a federal crime punishable by a range of 15 to 30 years in prison.

Bradley was arrested on February 28.

U.S. Attorney Glassman commended the investigation of this case by HSI and the Miami County Sheriff’s Office, as well as Assistant United States Attorney SaMee Harden, who is prosecuting the case.

An indictment merely contains allegations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
