Probation ordered 
for child pornography

WOODSTOCK – A Wonder Lake man was sentenced to two years of probation after pleading guilty Thursday to one count of aggravated possession of child pornography.

Police said James A. Borca, 49, had thousands of files containing child pornography on his computer.

Besides probation, Borca must complete sex-offender treatment. He was given credit for two days served in jail, and an additional 88-day sentence was stayed, meaning he will not have to serve the sentence if he successfully completes terms of his probation.

Aggravated assault charges against Borca were dropped as part of a plea deal accepted by Judge Sharon Prather. He had been accused of making threatening remarks to the arresting officers.
