Springboro woman arrested after boyfriend found child porn on her phone, police say

SPRINGBORO, Ohio -- A Springboro woman was arrested on child porn charges after police say her boyfriend discovered sexually explicit videos on her smartphone and tablet devices.

Tanai Fortman, 32, is being held at the Warren County Jail on a $75,000 bond after officers say her boyfriend searched her phone to determine if she was cheating on him, but instead found explicit content involving a 4 year-old girl.

After making the discovery, Fortman's boyfriend called police to her home at 150 East Street in Springboro. He told responding officers that the videos he found had been emailed to several people.

When asked about the videos, Fortman said she didn't remember them being made -- and blamed her memory lapse on a large intake of weight-loss pills that rendered her unconscious.

She said she was working for an "online sexting company" and she got a message requesting she send videos of her and the child, officers said.

"She stated that she was sick to her stomach when she saw the videos and would never hurt (the victim)," an officer wrote in Fortman's arrest report.

After determining there was enough evidence for Fortman's arrest, officers took her into custody where she was later sent to the Warren County Jail.

Fortman is charged with two felonies: Illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material and pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor.

The victim is currently in her father's custody. Child services are involved in the case.
