Wood County man facing charges for allegedly possessing child pornography

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (13abc Action News) - A Wood County man is facing felony charges for allegedly having child pornography on his cell phone.

Ralph Duchacek, 53, was indicted by a Wood County grand jury Thursday on multiple counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor.

Court records show a police officer went to Duchacek's home back in November after they were tipped off that he may have been in possession of child pornography.

In a report, officers say Duchacek voluntarily gave them his phone. After going through the 'recently deleted' folder officers found “a number of nude photos of young females who appeared to be possibly be in their mid-teens.”

As of Thursday afternoon, Wood County Justice Center officials say Duchacek is no longer booked at the jail.
