DAYTON, Ohio — The attorney for a former Dayton Children’s doctor indicted on 145 counts related to a child pornography investigation today said the images involved were not pornography, the Journal-News reports.

Greg Ramey is to be arraigned today on the indictment unsealed Thursday.

FIRST REPORT: Dayton doctor charged with 145 felonies related to child porn

Jon Paul Rion, representing Ramey, said before the court appearance that the images were “provocative but not pornography.”

He added: “Every single individual in these images is clothed.”

Rion said he would enter a not guilty plea on behalf of his client.

“It’s far more benign than someone would expect to see in a case like this,” Rion said. “We can tell you that the images are not even close to what the general public would think would be associated in a case like this.”

There were no sex acts depicted, he said.
