Madigan: Lake County Man Arrested for Child Pornography

Posted by Admin On August - 28 - 2014

CHICAGO, IL ─ Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan announced charges against a Lake County man on multiple counts of possessing child pornography as part of “Operation Glass House,” her statewide initiative to apprehend the most active offenders who download and trade child pornography online.

Roman Oletsky, 37, of Mundelein, was arrested after investigators with Madigan’s office and the Mundelein Police Department executed a search warrant at his home in the 1300 block of Newport Street. Oletsky was charged with four counts of possession of child pornography, a Class 2 felony punishable by three to seven years in prison. Bond was set at $500,000.

This is the 68th arrest of Operation Glass House, which Madigan launched in 2010 to investigate and arrest offenders trading child pornography online. The operation’s investigations are conducted by Madigan’s High Tech Crimes Bureau and have revealed a disturbing community of criminals who are trading and viewing extremely violent videos of children as young as infants being raped and abused.

“Child pornography is a horrific crime that victimizes children each time a video of the abuse is viewed or traded,” Madigan said. “My office has been—and will continue to be—relentless in tracking down and apprehending offenders who download these heinous videos.”

The Mundelein Police Department assisted in the investigation, and the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office will prosecute the case.

“Thank you to the Attorney General’s Office and Mundelein Police Department for their efforts,” said Lake County State’s Attorney Michael Nerheim. “This is yet another example of how we are more effective at fighting crime, when we work together.”

“Mundelein was fortunate to work with the Attorney General’s Office in identifying and apprehending this dangerous offender,” said Mundelein Police Chief Eric Guenther. “There is nothing more important than protecting our children.”

In addition to Operation Glass House, Madigan leads the Illinois Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) with a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice. The Task Force investigates child exploitation crimes and trains local and county level law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois to do the same. Since 2006, Madigan’s ICAC task force has been involved in 812 arrests of sexual predators. The task force has also provided Internet safety training and education to 369,000 parents, teachers and students and more than 17,600 law enforcement professionals.

The public is reminded that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
