Press Release

A 44-year-old Oak Park man has been charged with aggravated child pornography for allegedly using an online file-sharing program to trade pornographic images and videos of children.

Oak Park Police arrested Joe V. Hymon of the 700 block of N. Austin Blvd., Wed., Oct. 17, based on information gathered by the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force, a multi-jurisdictional team that helps state and local law enforcement agencies investigate and prosecute cyber enticement and child pornography cases. An Oak Park police detective is assigned to the task force.

When Oak Park and Chicago police searched the residence late Wednesday afternoon, they found two computers that contained more than 700 pornographic images and videos of children. Hymon was not at home when the search warrant was executed, but arrived shortly thereafter and was immediately arrested.

Hymon, who was released on a $50,000 bond, is scheduled to make an initial court appearance at 9 a.m., Fri., Oct. 26, in the Fourth Municipal District Courthouse, at 1500 Maybrook Dr., Maywood.

Oak Park Police became involved in the investigation on Oct. 12 when contacted by the ICAC supervisor in the Cook County States Attorney’s Office about an IP address traced to an Oak Park residence that was downloading and uploading files containing pornographic images and videos of children.

In addition to the Oak Park Police and Cook County States Attorney’s Office, Chicago Police and the FBI Regional Crime Forensics Laboratory also played key roles in the investigation.
