COLUMBUS, Ohio – Prosecutors say the discovery of nude photos of a 1-year-old child and pieces of a man's mail in a tote bag donated to an Ohio thrift store has led to the man being indicted on rape and other charges.
The Franklin County prosecutor says sexual activity was depicted in a Polaroid picture found by Salvation Army employees in Columbus.
Police say they identified Gary Sovie because the bag contained his mail. They say he told them he's a "sick person."
The 48-year-old Sovie also was indicted on charges of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor and illegally using a minor in nudity-oriented material. Authorities allege the abuse occurred in 1999 at his Grove City home.
Sovie is in custody and has no attorney to comment for him. He hid his face in court Tuesday. His arraignment is Wednesday.
