A 35-year-old East Liverpool man who’s been jailed since February on a 40-count secret indictment is scheduled to plead guilty next week in a child obscenity case.

According to Columbiana County Court Records, a plea hearing is scheduled for next Friday for Joseph Frye.  A sentencing hearing is set for June 13.

Frye has been held in the county jail since February 8 on $75,000 bond since the Columbiana County Grand Jury indicted him on five counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material, and 35 counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor.

According to the indictment, Frye photographed of a nude child between May and July of last year.
