“Any day we can remove from the community someone who uses or distributes child pornography I consider that a very good day,” said McHenry County Sheriff Bill Prim.

“What’s more, every arrest is a warning to other users that they will be found, arrested and prosecuted,” he added.

Authorities said the investigation is ongoing and anyone with additional information is asked to call the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office at 815-338-2144.
