AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

A former employee of Cuyahoga County Children and Family Services was sentenced on Tuesday, after pleading guilty to child pornography charges.

Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Todd McKenney sentenced Chuck Riggle, 41, of Akron, to four years in prison.

On Sept. 22, Riggle pleaded guilty to two counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor, both felonies of the second degree.

Riggle admitted to downloading and viewing at least three dozen files containing child porn images. Tallmadge Police arrested Riggle on March 3.

“Downloading and viewing child pornography is not a victimless crime. The children in these images and videos are victimized each time their pictures or videos is viewed and shared,” said Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh. “For 10 years, Mr. Riggle worked for agencies associated with helping children, yet he continued to view these horrible images. People need to know that we will hold people, like Mr. Riggle, accountable.”
