Keith Kayler, a 55-year old Hamilton Man Receives 15-year Sentence
March 03, 2006
(Hamilton, Ohio) Keith Kayler, a 55-year old Hamilton man was sentenced to 15 years in prison today, by Common Pleas Judge Nastoff, for 5 counts of Pandering Sexually Oriented Material Involving a Minor and 5 counts of Illegal Use of a Minor in Nudity Oriented Material. The charges stemmed from a vast collection of child pornography which was discovered on Defendant Kayler’s computer after a tip from America On-Line was referred to Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which resulted in the Hamilton Police Department becoming involved. Defendant Kayler’s past convictions include Sodomy, Indecent Acts Upon a Child, Enticing a Child to Commit a Lewd Act and Illegal Production of Pornographic Photographs involving a 7 & 8 year old boy. Kayler served a 7 year sentence for those crimes. Prosecutor Piper stated, “These crimes sicken me. He deserved 15 years due to his past record of being a pervert. It’s disgusting beyond explanation that deviants like this focus on little kids. While Kayler may look like a professional everyday person, he admitted being aroused with sexual fantasies involving young children and violence. Its easy to believe in chemical castration when sexual predators just won’t stop with their horribly aberrant behavior. I applaud the Hamilton Police Department for taking a potential monster off the streets — its another example of the police protecting us every day and often we are not aware of their efforts to keep us safe.” Kayler was also found to be a Sexual Predator. * * * Contact: For more information contact Robin Piper (513) 887-3494
