U.S. grand jury indicts former D.A.R.E. officer on child pornography charges

OHIO – Kevin A. Kovacs, a former longtime Beavercreek police officer who was arrested in April, was indicted by a federal grand jury yesterday.

In April 2020, Kovacs was arrested by criminal complaint and charged with producing, distributing, receiving, transporting and possessing child pornography, as well as tampering with a witness or informant.

The 10-count indictment filed Tuesday evening alleges Kovacs, in March and April 2015, coerced a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of creating child pornography.

Kovacs is also charged with multiple counts of distributing, receiving, transporting and possessing child pornography, as recently as December 2019.
