NORTH RIDGEVILLE, OH (WOIO) -
A Parma Heights man has been charged for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old North Ridgeville girl.
Cory Rudo, 26, has been charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, tampering with evidence, pandering obscenity involving a minor, importuning and sexual imposition.
A North Ridgeville officer was on patrol in the parking lot of South Central Park when he found a vehicle occupied by Rudo and the juvenile. After speaking with them and determining that no crime was actively taking place, Rudo was released and the juvenile was turned over to her mother.
Police then began an investigation into Rudo and discovered that he was meeting both adults and juveniles by way of fake Facebook accounts that he had created. Once he met individuals through Facebook, Rudo would exchange nude photographs and videos of himself with the victims.
Anyone that may have had contact with Rudo in this manner is asked to call North Ridgeville police at 440-327-2191.
