HUNTLEY MAN ARRESTED ON CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CHARGES
Chicago — Attorney General Lisa Madigan today said that a Huntley man has been taken into custody and faces child pornography charges after a search of his residence revealed personal computer items that allegedly contain images of child pornography.
Local law enforcement arrested and charged Jimmy J. Dill, 37, of 10809 Cape Cod Lane, last week with five counts of Possession of Child Pornography, a Class 3 felony. They are holding him at the McHenry County Correctional Facility.
"My office is dedicated to working with our law enforcement partners to track down those in our communities who obtain images depicting child pornography," said Attorney General Madigan.
Investigators from Madigan's High Tech Crimes Bureau assisted the Huntley Police Department in executing a search warrant at Dill's residence resulting in the seizure of numerous computers and hard drives believed to contain child pornography. Earlier this year, Madigan's High Tech Crimes Bureau identified that Dill was offering child pornography over the Internet.
The public is reminded that these charges are merely accusations. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty. The McHenry County State's Attorney's Office will prosecute the case.
Through a grant from the Department of Justice, the Attorney General operates the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force which has 114 affiliated agencies throughout Illinois. Illinois ICAC is one of 62 similar organizations nationwide designed to investigate child exploitation crimes and deliver Internet safety education. Through June 2009, the Illinois ICAC task force provided Internet safety training and education to more than 92,000 parents and students, 7,580 law enforcement officers and prosecutors and responded to 1,688 cyber tips received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
