Avon Lake man indicted in federal court on child pornography charge


An Avon Lake man is one of three indicted Wednesday in federal court for child pornography crimes.

Shaun M. Stoneham, 37, is charged with receiving, possessing and accessing with intent to view child pornography, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Ohio announced.

"Stoneham received numerous images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct," U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman's office announced. The incidents allegedly took place between June and September 2017, according to Stoneham's indictment.

The charges were filed following an investigation by the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations office, the FBI and the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Also indicted by a grand jury on similar charges were David Greathouse Jr., 32, of Ravenna, and Sean P. McElhatten Jr., 30, of Concord.
