SHARE $750,000 bond for Addison man charged with child pornography

A west suburban man who prosecutors claim had multiple images of child pornography on his Kindle tablet was ordered held on a $750,000 bond Friday.

David Prefountain, 49, of Addison, is charged with two counts of child pornography, including a Class 1 felony, according to the DuPage County state’s attorney’s office. He appeared in bond court Friday.

Earlier this week, Addison police were notified of possible “Internet child pornography activity,” a statement from prosecutors said, and they “identified Prefountain as a possible suspect.”

When a search warrant was executed at his home Wednesday afternoon, officers found a Kindle tablet with multiple images of child pornography and arrested him without incident, prosecutors said.

“Child pornography continues to be a thorn in the side of society,” state’s attorney Robert Berlin said in the statement. “Purveyors of this disgusting filth will use every type of internet technology available to them to share and collect these disgusting images.

“Thanks to the cooperative efforts of law enforcement agencies across the globe however, the sick individuals who engage in this type of behavior will be caught and will be held accountable.”

Prefountain’s next court appearance is set for Oct. 5. Should he post bail, a judge ordered that he have no contact with children under 18 and no Internet access, according to prosecutors.
