A Rantoul man who allegedly had a cellphone with pornographic images of children on it was arrested by Rantoul police Thursday.
Police said federal probation officers were checking on 48-year-old Christopher Fiore. He's serving a term of mandatory supervised release after having been to federal prison for possession of child pornography.
Fiore also has a conviction for aggravated sexual abuse in Iroquois County.
Police located him at his girlfriend's and found that he had a cellphone that was not equipped with filtering software, one of the conditions of Fiore's release.
Authorities confirmed that the phone had pornographic images of children on it, then arrested Fiore.
He was charged in Champaign County Circuit Court Friday with possession of child pornography, a Class 3 felony carrying penalties ranging from probation to two to five years in prison. Bond was set at $2 million.
Records show Fiore was put on mandatory supervised release after having served a prison sentence for the federal child porn conviction as well as an Iroquois County conviction for aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
