A Cincinnati man, already in prison serving time for raping three young boys, has been sentenced to an additional 612 months in prison for producing child pornography involving at least five children, two who were 10-years-old.

Kenneth Rose, 39, was also sentenced to serve the rest of his life under court supervision after he completes his prison time. He also has to register as a sex offender.

Cincinnati Police arrested Rose in November 2008 and charged him with raping multiple boys. They searched Rose's house and seized a computer belonging to Rose. A forensic examination of the computer equipment conducted by the Regional Electronic Crimes Investigations Unit ("RECI") revealed numerous digital images of child pornography.

The images depicted at least five known victims and two who remain unknown, then under the age of 16, engaged in sexually explicit conduct as well as lascivious display of their genitalia. Detectives with the Cincinnati Police Department Personal Crimes Unit investigated and identified several of the children involved in the images as being associated with the defendant.

Rose was convicted on the state rape charges and is serving a 30-year sentence. He also pleaded guilty on December 14, 2010 to three federal charges of producing child pornography involving three different children.

He was sentenced to 204 months on each of the three counts with the sentences to run consecutively. He was ordered to serve the federal sentence concurrently with the 30-year state sentence, completing his federal sentence after he serves his time on the state charges.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Christy Muncy told the court that Rose "masqueraded in his community as a person worthy of trust. Parents left their children in his care because he presented himself as a role model. In reality, he preyed upon the innocence of their children's youth. He paid young boys to engage in sex acts with him. He lured them into his home. In exchange for sex, he paid them with gift cards and baseball caps. He stole their childhood…. His victims' sentences will be life-long. The defendant's sentence should be no less."
