WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Niles man accused of having child pornography in his Robbins Avenue home pleaded guilty to 20 charges on Thursday.
Richard Lisovitch, 32, was originally charged with 30 counts of pandering child sexually explicit material involving a minor.
Investigators with the Bureau of Criminal Investigations, Trumbull-Ashtabula Group Task Force and the Warren Police Department say they found thousands of child pornography pictures and videos in his possession.
Thursday, Judge Ronald Rice revoked Lisovitch’s bond as he awaits a pre-sentencing investigation. He is scheduled to be sentenced at a later date.
Lisovitch could face up to two to eight years in prison on each charge, for a total of 40 to 160 years, as well as up to $15,000 in fines on each of the charges. He would also have to register as a tier 2 sex offender.
