LEBANON, Ohio — A Lebanon man was sentenced to 53 months in prison for using online photo editing tools to superimpose a real child's face onto images of adult pornography.
Kenneth Laseur, 36, pleaded guilty in August to possessing obscene images depicting the sexual abuse of children.
Court documents said Laseur was on probation in Hamilton County for a previous conviction for telecommunications harassment and violated his probation; he was arrested and his cell phone and computer were searched, which led officials to discover the images.
U.S. Attorney David DeVillers said the child's face Laseur digitally added into the adult images was that of a female under the age of 12 whom he knew personally.
Laseur admitted to officials that he created the photos with a photo editing tool he found online and that the images he created were obscene.
