FREDONIA — A former Fredonia city administrator pleaded guilty to child pornography charges, according to The Wilson County Citizen. Michael Ohrt, 40, entered a plea in November after a grand jury handed down an indictment with four charges related to child pornography. The indictment said that between December 2016 and June 2017, Ohrt possessed and transmitted via the internet, images of prepubescent minors engaged in sex acts. Ohrt was hired as city administrator in December 2016 and city commissioners decided not to renew his contract in October 2017.
