Mentor-on-the-Lake Man Convicted Of Distributing Child Pornography
Kevin A. Davis, who is already a convicted sex offender, will be sentenced March 22
A Mentor-on-the-Lake man, who is already registered as a sexual predator, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of child pornography and another charge of distributing it on the Internet.
Kevin A. Davis, 47, will be sentenced by Federal Judge Christopher Boyko on March 22.
Davis was arrested in May when agents from the Postal Inspector's Office, with the help of the Mentor-on-the-Lake Police Department, raided his home and confiscated a laptop computer, DVDs and several color photos of nearly nude prepubescent boys.
Davis has been registered as a sexual offender since 2002 when he pleaded guilty to attempted pandering obscenity involving a minor in Lake County Court of Common Pleas.
On Jan. 27, 2002, officers from the Mentor-on-the-Lake Police Department were called to Davis' home for a domestic disturbance.
While investigating a physical altercation between Davis and a family member, the officers discovered several photographs of nude boys on the floors and walls of Davis' room, according to the Lake County Prosecutor's Office.
There were also pornographic images of young boys on his computer, as well as homemade videotapes of adolescent boys and children performing various sex acts, prosecutors said.
Davis has also been convicted of drug charges and domestic violence. Before his arrest last year, he most recently went to prison in 2005 when he was convicted on a felony count of domestic violence.
