Ohio day care operator charged in child porn probe

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - An Ohio man whose home was used as a day
care center has been charged with making pornographic videos of
young boys after an investigation that also led to charges against
a Salt Lake City man.
The Utah Attorney General's office says 49-year-old Darin Casper
of Cleveland pleaded not guilty this week to 150 counts of sexual
crimes against children.
Ohio authorities were led to Casper after a 2010 investigation
of child exploitation in Utah, where an internet crimes task force
had interviewed 27-year-old Dino Prste. The Salt Lake City man
subsequently was charged with 20 counts of sexual exploitation of a
minor.
Authorities say they seized approximately 1,500 child
pornography images in Ohio and are trying to identify victims. The
day care center has since been shut down.
