Attorney General Raoul charges a Marion man with possessing child pornography
The Illinois Attorney General's office has charged a Williamson County man with possession of child pornography.
The case is part of AG Kwame Raoul’s ongoing work, in collaboration with federal law enforcement agencies and local law enforcement officials throughout Illinois, to apprehend those who download and trade pornography online.
Raoul’s office charged 44-year-old Jacob Sloan of Marion with 11 counts of possession of child pornography, Class 2 felonies each punishable by up to seven years in prison.
Investigators conducted a search of Sloan’s residence in the 1400 block of North Magnolia Street in Marion on August 9. Sloan was later arrested and taken into custody at the Williamson County Jail.
Attorney General Raoul’s office will co-prosecute the case with the Williamson County State’s Attorney office.
