Allegations involve images on computer

BATAVIA - A Union Township man on Friday pleaded not guilty to charges that he possessed sexually oriented computer images involving juveniles, authorities said.

Kevin J. Heidenreich, 33, was arraigned in Clermont County Common Pleas Court on four charges of pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor and four counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance. He is being held in the county jail on $50,000 bond.

A pretrial hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.

Heidenreich was arrested Jan. 29 after Union Township police found images on his computer of juveniles naked and engaging in sex acts, authorities said.

The case unfolded after a man in Madeira notified police that his teen-aged daughter had received suggestive comments from Heidenreich over the computer, Clermont County Assistant Prosecutor Daniel Breyer said.

It doesn't appear that any of the juveniles in the images live locally, authorities said.
