YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A Youngstown man accused of photographing himself sexually assaulting a young girl is set to appear before a federal judge on Friday as he faces new allegations that there was a second victim.

A federal grand jury has handed up a new four-count indictment against 36-year-old Daniel Fleischer that adds another count of sexual exploitation of children to an earlier indictment that charged him with sexually exploiting children, as well as receiving or distributing pictures of children engaged in sexual conduct, possessing child pornography.

The new indictment claims that in addition to photographing himself as he sexually assaulted a child, in June 2011, he did the same with another child in December 2013.

Fleischer is also accused of receiving and distributing several images of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, taking place between December of 2017 and March of 2018.

The charges follow a raid by state and federal agents on Fleischer's Brownlee Woods Weston Avenue home in March that agents say turned up a phone and two thumb drives containing child pornography.

According to an affidavit filed by a BCI agent, authorities began their investigation in December after becoming aware of child pornography videos being sharked through the KIK social media platform.

Investigators say the videos showed nude and half-nude girls ranging in age from five to fourteen years old.

Fleischer is scheduled to appear for arraignment Friday in U.S. District Court in Youngstown.
