LOVELAND, OH (FOX 19) -

A Loveland man was arrested and charged Wednesday with receipt and distribution of child pornography.

According to a criminal complaint, Hamilton Township Police received a report in November that 25-year-old Jake Damron had taken pornographic pictures of a 5-year-old he had access to.

It was reported that Damron was trading images of the victim for other child pornography with the Kik messenger app.

During an interview with FBI agents, Damron confirmed that he had taken sexually explicit photographs of the 5-year-old. He stated this was the only victim he had photographed and that he had “probably” taken them due to easy access.

“I commend the investigation by the FBI and the Hamilton Township Police, particularly the speed with which they were able to act,” said U.S. Attorney Glassman in a news release. “This kind of close cooperation between federal and local law enforcement partners helps make urgent action possible.” 

Receipt and distribution of child pornography is punishable by five to 20 years in prison.
