$500K bond for Frankfort man charged with possessing child pornography

Sean Field | Will County sheriff's office

A Frankfort man charged with possessing child pornography at his southwest suburban home has been ordered held on a $500,000 bond.

Sean Field, 31, was taken into custody without incident Monday when detectives executed a search warrant at his home in the 7500 block of West Inverness Lane in Frankfort, according to a statement from the Will County sheriff’s office.

He had become the target of an investigation after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children contacted the sheriff’s office in March with information on an IP address containing “thousands of child pornography images,” the statement said.

Field cooperated with detectives and made statements incriminating himself about his use of the specific IP account, police said.

He has been charged with two counts of possession of child pornography, police said.

On Wednesday, Field was ordered held at the Will County Adult Detention Facility on a $500,000 bond, the sheriff’s office said. He is due back in court on July 11.
