The case of a Vandalia man charged with ten counts of child pornography is ready to move to trial after a final pre-trial hearing on Tuesday in Fayette County Court. 36-year old Ryan J. Koontz appeared with defense attorney Shin Cho for the hearing in which Cho stated that he did not have any more motions to file and did not foresee filing any more before the July trial date. State’s Attorney Josh Morrison and Assistant Attorney General Shannon O’Brien declared they were ready for trial and Cho also declared ready to move ahead to trial. Koontz’s trial will begin Monday, July 24th at 8:30am. Koontz is charged with 8 counts of possession of child pornography, which are Class 2 felonies and punishable by 3-7 years in prison, and 2 counts of reproducing or disseminating child pornography of a child reasonably known to be under 13 years of age, which are punishable by 6-30 years in prison. Koontz remains in the Fayette County Jail as his bond on the case was revoked following his no show at his previous scheduled trial week in April which then led to a multiple day search by law enforcement before his capture.
