Ohio man accused of trading drugs for sex with children

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A federal indictment accuses an Ohio man of exchanging drugs for sexual access to children of drug-addicted parents. The indictment says Larry Dean Porter repeatedly traded drugs for sex with three girls, with several other adults helping transport the victims to Porter's house. Porter is also accused of taking sexually explicit photos of the children for the purposes of creating child pornography. The U.S. Attorney's Office in Columbus planned to discuss details of the indictment later Wednesday. Porter's court-appointed public defender declined comment. Eight other adults were charged, including two of Porter's adult daughters and a cousin of Porter.
