WARREN -- A Niles man known in his neighborhood as Santa Claus has been indicted on 35 charges related to possessing child pornography.
A Trumbull County Grand Jury indicted William Brock, 65, 832 Mason St., on 16 counts of second-degree felony pandering sexually oriented matter and 19 counts of fourth-degree felony pandering.
He is currently being held at the Trumbull County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.
Federal, state and local law enforcement officials raided Brock's residence July 19 looking for child pornography.
A woman Brock lived with at the time, Connie Ramirez, 43, was also charged with rape, gross sexual imposition, pandering obscenity involving a minor and pandering sexually explicit matter involving a minor.
Investigators said they found images of Ramirez engaged in sex acts with juvenile females, including a relative, and other images of bestiality, some of which were recorded on a cell phone and sent to Brock.
Ramirez, who is being held at the county jail on $500,000 bond, was a teacher at the TLCC Preschool and Day Care on Idlewood Road in Austintown for about 12 years.
