Police say couple lured teens into porn ring

PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A couple are accused of luring teens into their home with alcohol and drugs in exchange for using them in pornographic pictures and videotapes, some of which were sold through the Internet, police said.

Robert Noda, 53, and Lynette Toth, 35, of Madison Township in Lake County, were charged Friday in Painesville Municipal Court with child endangering. Police records say the couple used children under age 18 for sexually oriented photographs and videos in their home.

The two were in Lake County Jail after failing to post bond
Friday. Lake County Department of Human Services caseworkers took custody of a 9-year-old girl living in the house on Thursday.

Madison Township police Lt. Len DelCalzo said federal officials are reviewing several boxes filled with videotapes, photographs and computer disks seized from the home.

"Some of the photographs and tapes were sold over the
Internet," DelCalzo said.

Federal, state and local police officers searched the couple's house Thursday after narcotics officers tipped off Madison Township police about sex parties there.

"They had parties and invited teens between the ages of 13 and 17," DelCalzo said. "Once the children became intoxicated or drugged, they were invited into the bedroom. They were asked to model lingerie and then were photographed under various stages of dress. Sometimes they were asked to perform sex acts."
