NEWTON FALLS - A village man charged with 10 counts of pandering obscenities involving a minor pleaded not guilty at his arraignment today.
Bernard Stuntebeck, 35, appeared via video arraignment in Newton Falls Municipal court, where his $100,000 bond was continued.
Newton Falls police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation raided Stuntebeck's Newton Falls home on Monday.
Agents and officers took several boxes and computers from Stuntebeck's house at at 329 E. Broad St.
After his arrest on Monday, Stuntebeck was immediately taken to Newton Falls Municipal Court where Judge Philip Vigorito determined there was enough probable cause to hold him on $100,000 until his arraignment in municipal court today.
Assistant Trumbull County Prosecutor Gabe Wildman said earlier this week that the FBI in Youngstown was able to pinpoint Stuntebeck's online internet activity through an IP address. He said the search warrant for Stuntebeck's home came from a federal judge.
