      Source:OSHP Sgt. fired, Already indicted for showing porn to child

      Ricky Vitte has lost his job with OSHP after being indicted by a grand jury.

      An Ohio State Highway Patrol sergeant, already indicted for showing porn to a 12-year-old boy in 2009, has been fired.

      According to the Port Clinton News Herald, 33-year-old Ricky Vitte was fired on Monday.

      Sgt. Vincent Shirey told the newspaper the decision was made after an internal investigation into the allegations against Vitte.

      The 33-year-old had worked at the Toledo post of OSHP in the past and was on paid administrative leave before this week.

      The Helena resident was indicted, by a Sandusky County grand jury, earlier this month for "disseminating matter harmful to a juvenile".

      Prosecutors say that Vitte made the victim watch pornographic videos and simultaneously masturbate with him at the sergeant's home.

      The victim, who is now 18, reported the incident to Erie County Children Services.

      Vitte has denied wrong doing in the past and a sheriff??s report states he told the victim's mother he was trying to teach her son about alternatives to sexual intercourse.
