Gallia County Cell Phone Repairman Indicted for Stashing Customers’ Nude Photos


GALLIPOLIS, OH – June 14, 2024 – A Gallia County man has been indicted following a disturbing investigation that revealed he downloaded private and intimate photos from his clients’ phones, including those of minors, while working at a cell phone repair business. Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost made the announcement today.

Calvin Jordan, 27, of Gallipolis, faces 40 felony counts in Gallia County Common Pleas Court. If convicted, Jordan will be required to register as a sexual offender.

  • Three counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor (second-degree felony)
  • One count of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented materials (fifth-degree felony)
  • 36 counts of unauthorized use of property – computer, cable, or telecommunication device (fifth-degree felony)

Jordan was employed by Direct Computing Solutions (also known as DC Solutions) in Gallipolis. The indictment alleges that from December 2021 to April 2022, he downloaded nude and intimate photographs from the mobile devices of more than 40 clients.

The investigation, conducted by the Gallipolis Police Department and the attorney general’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation, found that both female and male clients were victimized. The victims included minors ranging in age from 14 to 17.

Customers of DC Solutions who suspect they may be victims are urged to contact the Bureau of Criminal Investigation at 855-BCI-OHIO (855-224-6446).

Attorneys from Yost’s Special Prosecutions Section are prosecuting the case. It is important to note that indictments merely contain allegations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.

This case highlights the importance of safeguarding personal data and the serious repercussions for those who exploit positions of trust for criminal activities. The Attorney General’s office and local law enforcement continue to work diligently to protect the privacy and security of Ohio residents.
