MEDINA COUNTY -- The Medina County Sheriff's Office and the FBI's Crimes Against Children Task Force arrested and charged a Sharon Township man Wednesday with distributing child pornography.
They charged Richard J. Miezin, 47, of Sharon Township.
They arrested him based on a federal arrest warrant. The arrest was the result of a joint Investigation by the Medina County Sheriffs Office and the Akron office of the FBI's Crimes Against Children Task Force.
The Medina County Sheriffs Office and the FBI have joined forces to detect, apprehend, and prosecute those who exploit children.
Targeting child predators is a priority of the newly established task force.
"Protecting the most innocent among us is one of my highest priorities," said Sheriff Tom Miller.
Miller said Miezin would be arraigned in federal court and will remain in federal custody.
Miller did not supply any more details.
