WOODSTOCK – A former McHenry County man will be in court Thursday facing 10 counts of child pornography charges.

The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office learned in 2015 that someone was downloading child pornography from 5810 Greenview Road, Oakwood Hills, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

After investigating, police arrested Robert T. Rado III, 50, on Sunday in Rochelle.

During a search, Rado’s electronics were seized, and child pornography was discovered on his computer. Rado later said that he downloaded numerous files containing child pornography, according to the news release.

Rado is being held at the McHenry County Jail on $50,000 bond, the sheriff’s office said.

If convicted of a Class 2 felony, Rado could face up to seven years in prison.
