FORT WAYNE, IN—The United States Attorney’s Office announced that a grand jury sitting in Fort Wayne, Indiana, returned the following Indictment on December 18, 2012:

Troy A. Ditiway, 26, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, is charged in a single count indictment with possession of one or more matters containing visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct on or about September 20, 2012. The indictment also seeks for the forfeiture of a computer and a thumb drive. This charge was filed as the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Fort Wayne Police Department. This case has been assigned to and will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Lesley J. Miller Lowery.

The United States Attorney’s Office emphasized that an indictment is merely an allegation and that all persons charged are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in court.

If convicted in court, any specific sentence to be imposed will be determined by the judge after a consideration of federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
