Man on federal parole for child porn arrested for child porn

According to the Paxton Record, A Rantoul man who allegedly had a cellphone with pornographic images of children on it was arrested by Rantoul police Thursday.

Rantoul police Sgt. Justin Bouse said federal probation officers were checking on Christopher M. Fiore, 48, who listed an address in the 1900 block of County Road 3000 N, who is serving a term of mandatory supervised release after having been to federal prison for possession of child pornography.

They were visiting him at his girlfriend’s home on Mather Drive, Bouse said, when they found that he had a cellphone that was not equipped with filtering software, one of the conditions of Fiore’s release.

Bouse said the federal probation officer contacted Rantoul police, who 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.

Bouse said in May 2012, Fiore was put on mandatory supervised release, formerly known as parole, after having served a prison sentence for the federal child porn conviction as well as an Iroquois County conviction for aggravated criminal sexual abuse. He was due to finish his supervised release in May.
