In Oct. 2021, detectives executed a search warrant on Fasano’s home, finding he had been downloading child pornography, in addition to recording the house sitter.

On March 23, Fasano was indicted by a Washington County Grand Jury on five counts of first-degree encouraging child sex abuse and five counts of second-degree invasion of personal privacy.

Fasano was arrested and booked into the Washington County Jail on Friday, according to the Sherwood P.D.
