Three Cleveland men are charged with using the Internet to collect pornographic videos and photographs of children.
Christopher Jones, 34, was indicted on 100 counts. Prosecutors say he was sharing pornography from January through May 7, when officers with the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force searched his East Side home. "Jones was downloading child pornography when officers arrived," prosecutor's spokesman Ryan Miday said.
David Lingenfelter, 21, was indicted on 41 counts. Prosecutors say he was sharing child pornography from his parents' house in Warrensville Heights from August through November 2008. March 6, the task force searched his house and confiscated his computer.
Sherief Ishac-Sorial, 27, of Cleveland, was indicted on 29 counts. Prosecutors say he was sharing child pornography from his West Side house from May through September 2008. His computer was confiscated Dec. 12.
The ICAC task force was created in 1999 by Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason and includes members of local, state and federal law enforcement. It expanded statewide in 2003 to include 280 law enforcement agencies, at least one from each of Ohio's 88 counties.
