Man Arrested for Luring Online Child Sex

( Blanchester, OH  ) - Police arrested 36-year-old Stewart Matthew Kidwell on Friday on charges of distributing child pornography and enticement of another person to engage in illegal sexual contact with a minor child.

Investigators are accusing Kidwell of seeking out someone online to rape a 4-year-old family member so that he could watch it. Police also accuse him of then distributing sexually explicit photos of the family member and offering to take the child to the meeting location. 

Kidwell is being held without bond. The case will be heard in front of a federal grand jury for possible additional charges. He could possibly be sentenced for life in prison for these crimes if convicted.
