Madeira Man Sentenced to 25 Years on Two Counts of Producing Child Pornography

CINCINNATI—Timothy Lawrence Andriot, 39, of Madeira, Ohio was sentenced to 25 years’ imprisonment in U.S. District Court for two counts of production of child pornography. Andriot was also sentenced to lifetime supervised release.

Carter M. Stewart, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, Kevin Cornelius, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Cincinnati Field Office (FBI), the Regional Electronics Computer Investigations (RECI) in Sheriff Jim Neil’s Office, Madeira Police Chief Frank Maupin, and other agencies in the Greater Cincinnati Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force announced the sentence handed down by Chief U.S. District Judge Susan Dlott yesterday.

According to court documents, Madeira Police and the Hamilton County Jobs and Family Services were investigating allegations that Andriot had sexually abused two minors in June 2013. Forensic examination by RECI of Andriot’s computers recovered images that Andriot had created of him sexually abusing two minor children.

Andriot was arrested by the FBI on a criminal complaint on November 13, 2013. He has been in custody since his arrest.

While under court supervision, Andriot must register as a sex offender anywhere that he lives, works or goes to school.

“The Internet does not cause someone to abuse their children.” Assistant U.S. Attorney Christy Muncy told the court. “Pornography magazines do not cause someone to abuse their children. And, anyone who thinks domestic violence and child abuse are isolated incidents are willfully blind to the harsh realities of both.”

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse. Led by the U.S. Attorneys Offices, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children, as well as identify and rescue victims.

Stewart commended the investigation by Madeira police detectives, FBI Special Agents, and investigators with the Greater Cincinnati ICAC, as well as Assistant U.S. Attorney Christy Muncy, who prosecuted the case.

Agencies participating in the Greater Cincinnati ICAC include the FBI, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Secret Service, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters, Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil, and the police departments in Amberley Village, Blue Ash, Cincinnati, and West Chester.
