LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) – A Negley man was secretly indicted earlier this month by a Columbiana County grand jury on pornography charges involving a minor.
Eleven charges have been brought against 40-year-old Matthew Severs including seven counts of illegal use of a minor person in nudity-oriented material or performance and four counts of voyeurism.
According to court documents, Severs photographed a minor in a state of nudity on several occasions between January 2019 to November 2021.
Bond was set at $50,000 and Severs is ordered not to have contact with the victim.
Severs is scheduled for arraignment May 4.
