GIRARD, Ohio (WKBN) – The case against an Akron man accused of sending nude pictures to a young girl has been bound over to the Trumbull County Grand Jury.

Otis Arnold was in Girard Municipal Court Wednesday for a preliminary hearing. He’s facing a felony disseminating matter harmful to juveniles charge.

Arnold is currently in the Richland Correctional Institution serving a drug possession sentence imposed in November.
