Bolingbrook man charged with possession of child pornography

March 15

Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow announced that a Bolingbrook man has been charged with five counts of possession of child pornography.

Antonio Rubio, 50, of 1026 Beaconridge Ave., was arrested March 14 after a joint investigation by the Will County State’s Attorney’s High Technology Crimes Unit and the Bolingbrook Police Department. Rubio was arrested Thursday at his residence after detectives executed a search warrant on the apartment where he lives with his fiancé.

The arrest was the result of a three-month investigation launched by the Will County State’s Attorney’s High Technology Crimes Unit into the distribution of child pornography over the Internet. Detectives took possession of Rubio’s computers pursuant to the search warrant.

Rubio’s bond was set at $100,000. He must post 10 percent, or $10,000, to secure his release while he awaits trial. As conditions of his bond, he is prohibited from using a computer and from having unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 18. He is scheduled to appear in court next on April 5.

The charges are Class 2 felonies that carry a penalty of three to seven years in prison upon conviction. If the public has information pertaining to the arrest of Antonio Rubio, please contact the Will County High Technology Crimes Unit at (815) 732-1632.

The Will County State’s Attorney’s Office reminds the public that charges 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.
