A Wonder Lake man has been charged with numerous counts of possessing child pornography material and an arrest warrant has been issued for him.
James N. Nicholas, 62, of the 6700 block of Giant Oaks Road in Wonder Lake, was charged with 10 counts of child pornography, ranging from Class X to Class 3 felonies.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Nicholas possessed child pornography dating back to June 2019.
The complaint said the images showed children who were under the age of 13.
The case was investigated by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office.
Prosecutors approved charges against Nicholas last week and a judge issued an arrest warrant for him.
Court records and jail records show Nicholas is not in custody yet.
The most serious charges against Nicholas are Class X felonies, which carry a sentence of six to 30 years in prison.
Court records show Nicholas has no criminal history in McHenry County besides traffic citations.
