MAINEVILLE, OH (FOX19) -

The former co-owner of a Maineville pre-school has been indicted on 25 charges involving child pornography.

John Foster, 36, was indicted by a federal grand jury on 24 counts of receiving child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

Foster was the co-owner of the Primrose School at River's Bend in Maineville. The school has since closed.

The indictment alleges that between 2004 and 2007, Foster received visual depictions of minors used to engage in sexually explicit conduct. The indictment charges Foster with one count of possession of child pornography for having a computer and approximately 25 compact discs containing pictures and movies of child pornography. They were found in a search of Foster's residence in July 2011. 

Each count of receipt of child pornography is punishable by at least five and up to 20 years in prison. Possession is punishable by up to ten years in prison.

Foster is currently in custody on state charges for rape. He will have an initial appearance before a U.S. Magistrate Judge. 

On August 12, 2011, a Warren County grand jury indicted Foster on 26 felony counts, including rape, sexual battery, and gross sexual imposition of two alleged victims.  That case is scheduled for trial in the Warren County Court of Common Pleas on October 31, 2011. 

Neither of the two alleged victims in the state case, and none of the victims of the federal child pornography charges are students at the Primrose daycare and preschool.       

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.
