North Olmsted man gets 21+ years in prison for child porn, voyeurism

CLEVELAND - A North Olmsted man was sentenced to more than 21 years in prison after pleading guilty to 42 child pornography-related charges.

In June, the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force searched the house of 40-year-old Michael P. Young.

Agents, along with Cleveland MetroParks Rangers, seized computers, cameras, VHS tapes, CDs and an external hard drive, the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office said. After analyzing the items, investigators said Young had hundreds of child porn photos and videos.

Prosecutors also said that Young set up a hidden camera in his bathroom and secretly recorded a 17-year-old girl while she was nude.

On Nov. 30, Young pleaded guilty to pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor, minor in nude material or performance, voyeurism and possessing criminal tools. Judge Peter Corrigan sentenced him to 21 years and 11 months. When Young is released from prison, he will be classified as a Tier II sexual offender.
