Utah child porn case leads to arrest of Ohio day care operator

May 18 2012 - 9:32am

SALT LAKE CITY -- 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.
