Local man Tyler Ulm pleads guilty to sexually abusing toddlers while registered as sex offender

(STL.News) – A Dayton registered sex offender has pleaded guilty to producing child pornography through the sexual abuse of two toddlers.

Benjamin C. Glassman, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, Joseph M. Deters, Acting Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Cincinnati Division, Dayton Police Chief Richard S. Biehl and Montgomery County Prosecutor Mathias H. Heck, Jr. announced the plea entered into on Oct. 28 before U.S. District Judge Walter H. Rice.

According to court documents, Tyler Ulm, 24, created child pornography by sexually abusing a two-year-old boy and a three-year-old boy over the course of a year.  He abused the two-year-old on at least five occasions at various locations in the Dayton area and the three-year-old at least twice at Ulm’s Dayton residence.

Ulm produced at least seven videos and 58 pictures of the sexual abuse.

The plea agreement contemplates a sentence of 50 years to life in prison.  The plea is a global resolution that also involves state charges arising out of the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas.

Ulm pleaded guilty to two counts of producing and one count of distributing child pornography, as well as committing a felony offense involving a minor while being required to register as a sex offender.  He also accepted responsibility of his state charges, including two counts of rape of a person under 10 years of age, two counts of rape of a person under 10 years of age by force and two counts of gross sexual imposition of a person under 13 years of age.

Ulm was indicted by a federal grand jury in March 2018.

U.S. Attorney Glassman commended the investigation of this case by the FBI and Dayton Police Department.  Assistant United States Attorney SaMee Harden is prosecuting the federal case and Montgomery County Assistant Prosecuting Attorneys Kelly D. Madzey and Jonathan W. Sauline are handling the state charges.
