Judge releases North Jackson man caught with nude pictures of children

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A North Jackson man who was sentenced to prison until September 2015 for possessing pictures of children engaged in sexual situations is no longer behind bars.

An appeals court ruled last month that 46-year-old Milbur Stout was improperly given a two and a half year sentence in March of last year.

Stout was convicted of pandering obscenity and illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material after police found sexually explicit photos of children at his home.

The appeals court found that the sentencing court was wrong in finding that Stout was responsible for causing physical harm to the children depicted in the photographs, and ruled that he should not have been sentenced to prison.  The judges ordered Stout to be re-sentenced.

On Tuesday, Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Judge James Evans held a sentencing hearing and, following orders of the appeals court, released Stout and placed him on probation.
