Hamilton County Corrections Officer Arrested on Child Porn Charge

CINCINNATI — State authorities arrested a Hamilton County corrections officer Thursday on a child pornography charge.

Joshua Yeager, 30, shared child porn online, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced. A special agent with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation said in an affidavit that he downloaded child pornography from an IP address — the numeric designation that identifies a location on the internet — leading to Yeager’s Delhi Township home.

Yeager is facing a charge of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor.

DeWine said agents seized several electronic devices from Yeager’s home Thursday morning.

“Right now we are examining those devices for any additional evidence, and it is possible that more charges will be filed,” he said.

Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil said he relieved Yeager of duty and placed him on unpaid administrative leave. Yeager has worked for the sheriff’s office since November 2006.

A judge set Yeager’s bond at $7,500 Friday and ordered he have no contact with his 6-year-old child. Yeager will appear before a grand jury June 4.
