WHEATON, Ill. (CBS) – An Elmhurst man has been charged with 15 counts of possessing child pornography.
Paul F. Murphy, 55, was arrested late Friday after Elmhurst police discovered he was in possession of hundreds of images and videos containing child pornography.
Bond was set at $200,000 on Saturday during a hearing at the DuPage County Courthouse in Wheaton.
“Child pornography steals innocence from its young victims one photograph at a time,” DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert. B. Berlin said. “Each one of those images allegedly possessed by Mr. Murphy represents a victim.”
Murphy was due back in court on Feb. 28 for bond review and was scheduled for arraignment on March 21.
In addition to his bond, Murphy was ordered to have no contact with children under the age of 18 and to have no access to computers.
