James Vollmar, 31.

JOLIET – Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow announces that a Bolingbrook man has been indicted on five counts of possession of child pornography.

 

Officers from State’s Attorney Glasgow’s High Technology Computer Crimes Unit as well as the Bolingbrook Police Department and the U.S. Secret Service Computer Forensic Unit arrested James Vollmar, 31, of 117 Balmoral Drive on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013. Grand Jury indictments were handed up to Judge Gerald Kinney on Thursday.

 

Vollmar was arrested at his residence after detectives executed a search warrant on his apartment. The arrest was the result of a three-month investigation launched by the High Technology Crimes Unit into the distribution of child pornography over the Internet. Detectives took possession of Vollmar’s computer pursuant to the search warrant.

 

Vollmar’s bond was set at $50,000. He is scheduled to appear in court next on February 15 at 9 a.m. in Courtroom 405. The indictments are Class 2 felonies that carry a penalty of three to seven years in prison upon conviction.

 

The Will County State's Attorney's Office reminds the public that incictments are not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
