WHEATON — A west suburban man was ordered held on $300,000 bond Tuesday after thousands of sexual images and videos of children were allegedly found on his computer.

Christopher Korszlak, 28, of Addison, was charged with 12 counts of possession of child pornography and Judge Elizabeth Sexton ordered him held on $300,000 bond Tuesday, according to a release from the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s office.

If convicted, Korszlak faces up to 72 years in prison.

Korszlak ad thousands of videos and photos of child pornography on his computer, according to the state’s attorney’s office. Wheaton police took him into custody without incident April 8.

“Child pornography continues to claim thousands of innocent victims every year,” DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said in the release. “It is not a victimless crime. Every image and every video of child pornography represents another young child who has been victimized by child pornography and those who view it.”

If Korszlak posts bond, he is not allowed to have contact with children under the age of 18 and is not allowed to use a computer or the Internet, according to the state’s attorney’s office.

Korszlak will be back in court May 6.
