WILL COUNTY MAN SENTENCED ON
CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CONVICTION

Chicago — Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow today said that a Bolingbrook man was sentenced to four years in prison and two years mandatory supervised release after pleading guilty today to child pornography charges.

Circuit Court Judge Daniel Rozak sentenced Steven Snyder, 36, to the Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC) for the Class 1 felony of dissemination of child pornography.

In April 2007, undercover investigators with Madigan's High Tech Crimes Bureau and the Illinois Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force observed Snyder sharing child pornography on the Internet. In May 2007, Bolingbrook Police and investigators from Madigan's office obtained and executed a search warrant and seized a computer at Snyder's home. Numerous images of child pornography were found on the computer after an examination by Madigan's investigators.

Snyder is being held in the Will County Jail pending his assignment and transfer to an IDOC facility.

Assistant Attorney General Daniel Spillman of Madigan's High Tech Crimes Bureau co-prosecuted the case with Assistant State's Attorney John Connor of the Will County State's Attorney's Office.

Attorney General Madigan's High Tech Crimes Bureau investigates and prosecutes cases and coordinates the Illinois Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC). The bureau also offers important training and educational programs in the area of computer crimes, including online child pornography, online sexual abuse, online fraud, e-mail threats, identity theft and computer hacking.
