A criminal information was filed today against Robert A. Reiner, age 60, of Toledo, Ohio, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio. The charge relates to distribution of child pornography between on or about April 14, 2007 and April 14, 2009.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense, and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
The investigating agency in this case is the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Toledo, Ohio. The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Thomas O. Secor.
An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
