Jason Gruber of Campbell, Ohio is charged with pandering sexually material involving minors.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Campbell man was sentenced to eight years in prison on Friday for a child pornography-related conviction.

He was arrested in February following a child pornography investigation led by the Ohio Attorney General’s Crimes Against Children Unit and the Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office. Investigators seized several electronics from his Woodland Avenue home during the search.

He was initially charged with 50 counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor, but he pleaded guilty to 10 counts and the other 40 were dismissed, according to court records.
