BOWLING GREEN – A Swanton man has pleaded guilty to sexual-related offenses.

Todd Dixon, 53, appeared Monday in the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Molly Mack.

He pleaded guilty to the amended charge of disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, a fifth-degree felony.

Wood County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Lara Rump said Dixon had delivered obscene material to a juvenile.

On May 21, Perrysburg Police took a report of a woman who said her daughter had received a video on Snapchat from an unknown man. The photo showed male genitalia.

The girl was 13 years old at the time, Rump said.

Dixon admitted to sending the photo.

“It was not meant for her,” he said.

Sentencing was set for March 6.
