A west suburban Naperville man pleaded not guilty in federal court on Tuesday to charges that he created child pornography.
Douglas A. Willis, 52, was charged with one count of conspiracy to produce child pornography and one count of producing child pornography, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois.
According to the indictment, Willis and an unidentified person agreed that the other person would recruit boys under 18 to engage in sex acts and pose for nude photographs.
The other person allegedly brought the boys to Willis’ home, where they were given controlled substances and alcohol, federal prosecutors allege.
Willis then took photos of the boys showing their genitals and having sex acts performed on them, prosecutors claim. Both Willis and the other person also took photos and videos of each other engaged in sex acts with the underage boys.
The conduct charged in the indictment spans from September 1993 until at least August 2001, prosecutors said.
He faces 10-20 years if convicted, prosecutors said.
