A Solon Township man already facing state charges of child sexually abusive activity was indicted on eight new counts by federal authorities last week.

Leonard Glen Overmyer III, 44, was indicted in federal court on Wednesday, September 16, on six counts of transportation of child pornography, and two counts of possession of child pornography.

Overmyer was arrested in June after a 10-month investigation by the members of the Michigan State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC). “This investigation was initiated after 43 cyber tips were received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NMEC),” said Detective First Lieutenant Tim Kish of the MSP Digital Evidence Section, at the time of Overmyer’s arrest. “The officers assigned to the ICAC Grand Rapids office took aggressive steps to identify and arrest the individual responsible for such significant efforts to exploit children.”

State authorities charged Overmyer with two counts of sexually abusive activity, and two counts of using a computer to commit a crime. He is still awaiting trial on those charges.
