Man indicted on pornography-related charges


A Fostoria man has been indicted by a Seneca County grand jury on pornography-related charges.

Robert A. Carman 45, pleaded not guilty to charges of importuning, illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material and disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, all fifth-degree felonies, Tuesday morning.

Stephanie Kiser, assistant Seneca County prosecutor, said the alleged victim is a 14-year-old girl who lives in Georgia.

Carman allegedly had pornographic images in his possession, sent pornographic images to the girl and asked her for sexual acts, Kiser said.

Kelbley set Carman’s bond at $10,000 with a 10-percent allowance. Carman is to have GPS electronic monitoring if bond is posted and was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim.
