Man Accused of Sexual Contact with Teen
NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio — A 26-year-old man is facing several felony charges for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl.
Cory Rudo, of Parma Heights, is charged with tampering with evidence, unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, pandering obscenity and importuning.
According to North Ridgeville police, earlier this month, a patrolman was driving through the parking lot of South Central Park, when he found Rudo inside his car with a young girl.
After determining that nothing criminal was taking place, Rudo was released and the girl was turned over to her mother.
But the discovery of the duo prompted an investigation, which revealed Rudo’s history with fake Facebook accounts. Police say he used them to meet both adults and juveniles, then exchanged nude photographs and videos of himself with his victims.
Anyone who may have had contact with Rudo in the aforementioned way is asked to call the North Ridgeville Police Department.
Rudo was scheduled to appear in the Elyria Municipal Court Wednesday morning.
