Robert Lambert, former director of the Highland County (Ohio) CVB in Ohio, pleaded guilty on July 31 in connection with felony charges of distribution of child pornography and possession of child pornography. Lambert appeared Monday before U.S. District Judge Susan Dlott on July 31 to change his plea from not guilty. His trial had been set to begin Aug. 7. He had been indicted on four federal charges after his arrest last year in Hillsboro on charges involving sexual material depicting minors. Lambert was fired from his bureau job after his arrest in Aug. 2016. Lambert was fired last year from the CVB, which is located in Hillsboro, about 60 miles east of Cincinnati.
