ROOTSTOWN TOWNSHIP, Ohio- A Portage County man is facing child pornography-related charges after an investigation by the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

The Portage County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant on Thursday at the Rootstown Township home of William F. Main. The 63-year-old was arrested and taken to the Portage County Jail.

He’s charged with pandering obscenity involving a minor, which is a second-degree felony. The sheriff’s office said there is no evidence that any local children were involved at this point in the investigation.

Main is being held without bond and his arraignment is scheduled for Friday afternoon at the Ravenna Courthouse.
