Ft. Mitchell Man Guilty of Producing, Possessing Child Porn

A Ft. Mitchell man was convicted of on six counts of promoting a sexual performance by a minor under 16, and six counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.

Matthew Bucher, 29, would post as a teen on social media apps like Facebook, Kik, and MeetMe.

Kenton County investigators last year asked for more victims to come forward, months after Bucher was arrested on charges of raping a 12-year old girl and possessing child pornography.

A Kenton County jury convicted him on Thursday and recommended a 45-year prison sentence.

Kenton County Police Chief Spike Jones called Bucher "the worst of the worst".

Ultimately, investigators found 60,000 images of child porn on Bucher's phone, some of which was produced by him.

He faces 10 to 70 years behind bars when a judge sentences him but other trials are still pending.
