MOOREFIELD TWP., Ohio (WDTN) – Clark County deputies say a 16-year-old girl tipped them to child pornography.
Deputies say Jeffrey Ballard, 66, is now charged with 31 counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material. He is also charged with two counts of voyeurism and three counts of tampering with evidence.
The teen told deputies that she found photos on Ballard’s cell phone of her and a 12-year old girl using the restroom at a home in Moorefield Township.
Deputies seized a computer, flash drive and digital camera from Ballard’s Stonecroft Drive home and turned them over to the Bureau of Criminal Investigation for analysis.
BCI says it found a large number of nude photographs and video recordings.
A Clark County grand jury indicted Ballard Monday on all counts.
He is in the Clark County Jail awaiting his first court appearance.
