Streamwood man charged in child pornography case

Posted by Admin On January - 24 - 2014

A Streamwood man has been charged with possession of child pornography after investigators recovered numerous images and videos depicting children engaging in sex acts on a computer in his home, according to the Office of Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez.

Charles Brown, 49, of the 300 block of Somerset Drive, was charged with three counts of Child Pornography: two Class 2 Felonies (moving images) and one Class 3 Felony (still depictions by computer).

According to prosecutors, a search warrant was executed at Brown’s residence following an investigation by Cook County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Streamwood and Bartlett Police Departments. During the search, investigators recovered a computer from Brown’s residence, where his wife operates a residential child daycare business. A forensic review of the computer revealed numerous downloaded video and picture files depicting young children engaging in a variety of sex acts.

Brown was arrested by Streamwood Police Tuesday (Jan. 21) and appeared in bond court at the Rolling Meadows Courthouse where his bond was set at $25,000. Judge Jill Cerone-Marisie also imposed special conditions of bond that include no contact with anyone under the age of 18 and that Brown not be allowed to live at his residence or access the internet or cell phones. Brown’s next court date is Feb. 13 in Room 108 at the Rolling Meadows Courthouse.

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office administers the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which investigates and prosecutes criminal acts such as child pornography, sexual solicitation of a child or missing child investigations. The task force also offers guidance and information for parents and educators on internet safety.

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.
