JOLIET, Ill. (STMW) – A Naperville man is sentenced to three years probation and must register for life as a sex offender after being convicted of possessing child pornography on his home computer.
Kyle D. Gore, of the 2100 block of Riverlea Circle in the Naper Carriage Hill neighborhood, was also placed on three years of sex offender probation and fined, said Charles B. Pelkie, spokesman for Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow.
Gore, 24, pleaded guilty last month in Will County Circuit Court to a felony charge of aggravated child pornography. Gore, who had no prior criminal record, was sentenced Friday by Judge Amy M. Bertani-Tomczak.
Members of the Naperville Police Department’s High Tech Crimes Unit in April 2010 began investigating Gore, after receiving information a man was seeking to have sexual encounters with children.
Police Sgt. Gregg Bell in 2010 said further investigation identified an individual using an AOL screen name detectives linked to Gore. Police then obtained subpoenas and search warrants for Gore’s online account and home computer, Bell said.
Forensic analysis of the computer found it contained “numerous images of child pornography” and led to Gore’s arrest on Dec. 14, 2010, Bell said.
