Man sentenced on child porn charges

Leonard Glen Overmyer III, of Solon Township, was sentenced last week to 87 months in prison for sending child pornography through the Internet.

U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney also ordered 10 years of supervised release and a $100 special assessment.

Overmyer was arrested last year, after a 10-month investigation, by the Michigan State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. They started the investigation after 43 cyber tips were received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NMEC).

Overmyer initially pled not guilty, but changed his plea to guilty in December, after negotiating a plea deal, where seven of the eight charges were dropped.

Overmyer reportedly had no contact with any of the children shown in the photos, and lost his job because he viewed pornography at work.
