A 21-year-old Antioch man was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly possessing child pornography.
Mark Fine, 21, of the 700 block of Highview Court in Antioch, was charged with three counts of possession of child pornography, a Class 2 felony.
In January, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Cybercrimes Unit conducted an investigation into the suspected sharing of child pornography, according to Antioch Communication Specialist Jim Moran.
A judge issued an arrest warrant for Fine for allegedly possessing child pornography and set his bond at $300,000.
The Antioch Police Department arrested Fine and transported him to the Lake County Jail on Wednesday.
If convicted, Fine faces three to seven years in prison.
Fine is also facing charges of driving under the influence of drugs, operating an uninsured motor vehicle, improper traffic lane usage and driving on a suspended license, jail records show.
On Friday, the sheriff’s office announced they were seeking tips from the public in locating an 18-year-old Wadsworth man who is allegedly possessing child pornography and is avoiding apprehension.
Fine remains held at the Lake County Jail on a $300,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning.
