DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A Boy Scouts leader near Dayton has been charged with child pornography after an investigation by local and federal authorities.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency says 23-year-old Alan Johnson was arrested Thursday at his home in West Carrollton.
He appeared in federal court in Dayton on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography.
There was no public telephone listing for Johnson in the Dayton area.
Investigators said in court documents that Johnson said he had made contact with Scouts’ genitals between two and five times.
Miami Valley Council Boy Scouts executive Doug Nelson said he was shocked by the allegations and that they will help with the investigation if asked.
