Nanny accused of making child porn pleads guilty to child porn charges

Caleb Zachary Storey positively identifies 5 kids

CINCINNATI -- The Union Township nanny accused of producing and possessing child pornography changed his plea from not guilty to guilty in court Tuesday morning.

Caleb Zachary Storey, 30, pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography and one count of producing child pornography. Storey also confirmed the identify of five child victims.

According to terms in a plea deal, Storey faces 32 years in prison. That sentence must first be accepted by a judge.

A federal grand jury charged Storey in January with one count each of production of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

The FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force began investigating Storey after an illegal image traceable to an address where he babysat was recovered during a child pornography investigation in Georgia. The image was of a naked 3-and-a-half-year-old boy and a man’s hand. Storey's indictment accuses him of attempting to coerce a minor into sexually explicit conduct on or about March 26, 2012.

Agents obtained a search warrant for Storey’s apartment and said they found images of child erotica and child pornography on his computer. The FBI arrested Storey on Jan. 8. He has been in custody since his arrest.

Storey worked for Cincinnati’s The Goddard School, but has not been an employee there since September 2011. School officials said authorities have assured them the crimes Storey is accused of did not take place at the school.

“As an organization dedicated entirely to serving and nurturing children, we were shocked by the allegations,” The Goddard School owner Kate Joseph said. “Our first priority, every day, is to ensure the safety and well-being of the children in our care.”

Joseph said Storey was one of two teachers in a 3-year-old classroom and was employed from August 2009 to September 2011. She said Storey passed a criminal background check conducted by the state and the federal government in 2009.
