Clarendon Hills man posts bond on child porn charges

CLARENDON HILLS — A 25-year-old Clarendon Hills man has been charged with 12 counts of possession of child pornography and dissemination of child pornography by the DuPage County State's Attorney's Office.

Daniel R. Hiller, of 333 Park Ave., was taken into custody on Friday and posted bond on Saturday, Clarendon Hills Police Chief Ted Jenkins said.

Investigators from the Wheaton Police Department discovered pornographic material on Hiller's computer as part of their ongoing Internet crime efforts, according to a news release. That material was vetted by the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office and a search warrant was issued.

The search warrant was served on March 22 by members of the Clarendon Hills and Wheaton police departments. Electronic devices were seized and are currently being forensically examined.

Jenkins said the Wheaton Police Department has a unit devoted to Internet criminal investigations.

"There are ways they can look into other people's computers, like file-sharing software and things like that, so they continually look for child pornography," Jenkins said. "When they find it they try to identify who has this on their computer, who was involved in it and the case goes from there."
