Ohio man who secretly recorded naked minors receives 30 years in prison

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A Guernsey County man who placed hidden cameras in bathrooms and bedrooms to secretly record naked minors was sentenced by a federal judge Tuesday to 30 years in prison.

Mark A. Green, 56, of Senecaville, Ohio, pleaded guilty in January to two counts of exploitation of a minor and one count of possession of child pornography, but investigators say he had secretly recorded at least nine girls minors. Two of the girls say Green sexually abused them in person.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Ohio says court documents show that in 2022, Green used security cameras connected to his cell phone to record his victims. She watched the videos live or played them through a security app.

Investigators found more than 10,000 images and videos of child sexual abuse on 60 devices seized from Green’s home, documents show. Time stamps on the videos and photographs revealed that some were made in 2012, with underage women secretly recorded in the bathrooms and bedrooms of a previous residence.

Green was federally indicted in May 2023. Guernsey County is about 90 miles east of Columbus.
