An Oak Park man charged with felony possession of child pornography was sentenced, Nov. 5, to 180 days in jail and 30 months of intensive sex offender probation, a press release from Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alverez said.
Joe V. Hymon, 44, was arrested in October 2012 after the national Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) taskforce alerted police that pornographic images of children were being shared with an online sharing program from a computer in Hymon's possession at his residence in the 700 block of North Austin Boulevard.
Hymon pleaded guilty to aggravated child pornography in a hearing before Judge Paula Daleo at the Maywood courthouse.
Hymon, who has a 1993 felony conviction for aggravated battery to a child, will be required to register as a sex offender for life upon his release from jail, the State's Attorney's Office said.
