Richard Chacone

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A man accused of distributing child pornography was indicted Thursday on nearly a dozen charges.

Richard Chacone, 33, of Ridgelawn Avenue, is facing 10 charges of pandering obscenity involving a minor and one charge of possessing criminal tools, according to a Mahoning County grand jury indictment. He was arrested Dec. 11 at his home by officers with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

He originally was charged with one count of pandering obscenities. Ohio BCI officials said Chacone’s arrest followed an undercover investigation and the material found was in electronic format.

Police arrested Chacone following a preliminary review of computer equipment found at his home during the search.

Chacone remains at the Mahoning County Jail pending his arraignment next week.
