CHICAGO - The Northern Illinois branch of the FBI's Innocent Images project reports a federal court trial wherein a 27 year old Crest Hill man was arrested and faces trial for his involvement in the Chicago area's "Boy Lovers" child porn group. Where's the outrage over this local subhuman abuse of children?
[Mark] McGill was one of four men who were arrested in the Chicago area in September 2009 as part of an undercover investigation by the FBI’s Innocent Images Task Force of an informal group of self-described “Boy Lovers.” According to a cooperating defendant who testified at trial, McGill attended at least one party with members of the group and they showed each other child pornography. In August 2009, McGill gave the cooperating defendant a thumb drive containing approximately 3,500 images and nearly 60 videos, mostly depicting nude minor boys, many engaged in sexual acts. The same images and videos were recovered from McGill’s computer, which agents seized while executing a search warrant at his home when he was arrested, according to the evidence at trial.
A total of six defendants in Chicago have now been convicted as a result of this investigation, as well as additional defendants in other federal jurisdictions.
