Man gets 25 years in child-porn case

A western Ohio man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to secretly videotaping young girls in a bathroom at his home and trading the images for other online child pornography.

Mickell Close faces court supervision for 20 years after he’s released from prison, and will have monitoring software on any computer he owns or uses.

The sentence handed down by federal judge Edmund Sargus on Thursday also requires him to register as a sex offender anywhere he works, lives or goes to school.

Federal authorities arrested the 32-year-old Close in November as part of a nationwide child pornography sweep that rescued dozens of victims of child exploitation.

Investigators say numerous images of young girls in sexually explicit activity or bondage were found on Close’s computers.
