CINCINNATI (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a southwest Ohio man used Facebook to lure teenage boys, offering money for sex acts or naked photos.

Twenty-five-year-old Martell Antonio Lowry of Cincinnati is facing federal child pornography charges. He’s been convicted before of gross sexual imposition involving a minor.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (https://cin.ci/1Fnk8mp ) reports that Lowry is accused of communicating with the boys between October 2014 and Feb. 11. They ranged in age from 12 to 17. Authorities don’t believe he met with any of them.

The federal complaint says some of the boys sent Lowry naked images of themselves, and Lowry sent two photos of his genitals to a 12-year-old boy.

Lowry is being held without bond. His public defender couldn’t be reached for comment.
