VW Man Pleads Guilty To Child Porn Charges
Dec. 11, 2013: Van Wert, OH - A Van Wert man pleaded guilty on Monday to 13 felony counts involving child pornography. Paul Susralski, who was scheduled to have his case heard at trial later this week, pleaded guilty to all 12 counts.
Susralski pleaded guilty to eight counts of pandering obscenity involving minors, each a felony of the second degree, four counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented materials or performance, also second-degree felony charges, and one count of possession of criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony. The pleas would make Susralski eligible for a prison term of up to 97 years. He will be sentenced on Feb. 5, 2014.
Susralski was arrested in June after Van Wert Police and agents from the Bureau of Criminal Investigations and Identification served a search warrant at his Blaine St. home in Van Wert. Investigators had identified the house as a location where child pornography had been downloaded on a computer.
