A Zanesville man facing 33 counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor pleads no contest in court. The Muskingum County Prosecutor’s Office says 72-year-old Kali Suntoke appeared before Judge Kelly Cottrill and entered the plea to 16 of the charges. Judge Cottrill found him guilty and the other 17 charges will be dropped at sentencing. The prosecutor’s office says the offenses happened in March of 2012. Judge Cottrill classified Suntoke as a Tier II Sex Offender which means he must register every 180 days for the next 25 years.  He also ordered a pre-sentence investigation.
