United States News: Lima man, Dustin Davis indicted for child pornography offenses

United States – A Lima man was indicted on child pornography charges.

Dustin Davis, 41, was indicted on one count of receipt and distribution of child pornography.

Davis received and distributed numerous images of child pornography between September and November 2018, according to the indictment.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the Department of Homeland Security. The case is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracey Ballard Tangeman.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. Defendants are entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
