In June, authorities learned of possible child pornography linked to an IP address in DuPage County, prosecutors said. An investigation led to a search warrant of Bowery’s home where images were allegedly found on his computer.

“The allegation that Mr. Bowery was in possession of child pornography is revolting,” State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said. “As I have said many times in the past, each of these disgusting images represents yet another innocent victim of child pornography.”

Bowery is being held at the DuPage County Jail on $35,000 bond, the state’s attorney’s office said. His next court date is scheduled for Oct. 6.
