Chicago man charged in child pornography case

Posted by Newsroom On March - 25 - 2013

Bond was set for a Chicago man charged with possession and dissemination of child pornography after numerous images were recovered from his home computers, according to the Office of Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez.

Seamus Webb, 51, of the 1600 block of West Carmen Avenue, was charged with Aggravated Child Pornography (Dissemination) (Class X), Aggravated Child Pornography (Possession) (Class 2), Child Pornography (Possession-Moving Depiction by Computer) (Class 2) and Child Pornography (Possession-Still Depiction by Computer) (Class 3).

According to prosecutors, a search warrant was executed at Webb’s residence on March 16, 2012, resulting in the seizure of four computers. Forensic analysis of these computers revealed numerous images and videos depicting children engaging in a variety of sex acts. Further analysis and a review of Webb’s email account revealed that he had disseminated many of these images and videos between January 2012 and March 2012.

Webb was arrested yesterday (March 21) by police and appeared in bond court today before Judge Desierto who set bond at $100,000.00 -D. Webb’s next court date is April 11, 2013.

State’s Attorney Alvarez thanked the members of the Cook County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force for their work on this case.

The public is reminded that criminal charging documents contain allegations that are not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the state has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
