Sheriff: 18-Year-Old Charged With Child Porn Possession

An 18-year-old Lombard man is being held on $2,000 bond Friday after being accused of downloading child porn, police said.

Jacob Primas, of the 200 block of South Brewster Street, was arrested late Friday afternoon, according to a DuPage County Sheriff's Office press release. He was charged with three counts of possession of child pornography, a class 3 felony.

After a special Sheriff's Office division's investigation into downloading child porn, a search warrant was executed on July 17 at Primas' address. Electronics were removed from the home, according to the release.

"A forensic examination of the electronics revealed the presence of child pornographic movies depicting subjects under the age of 18 years old," the release said.

Primas was taken into custody and as of Friday afternoon remained in the DuPage County Jail on $2,000 bond. 

If convicted of any Class 3 felony, Primas could be sentenced to up to five years in prison, according to sentencing guidelines in the current state statute.

Members of the Sheriff's S.P.E.E.D. Unit (Sexual Predator Electronic Exploitation Division) headed the investigation.

The DuPage County Sheriff’s Office reminds readers that any charges indicated in this document are merely accusations, and the listed defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
