Federal court records say 42-year-old Greg Stephen has pleaded not guilty to knowingly transporting child pornography.

Court documents say an investigation into Weiler's activities began after he wired an explosive device to the gas tank of someone's vehicle in August 2017.

Investigators found the files after a search warrant was given for Riol's home.

Officers also discovered approximately 8 computers, almost 40 hard drives, and numerous cameras, SD cards, cell phones and USB drives, according to U.S. Attorney Kirsch.

The devices had numerous images and videos of suspected child pornography stored on them, police said.

A federal judge has sentenced a former Oregon City teaching aide to 28 years in prison for producing child pornography that involved an infant and a very young child. Children are among the most innocent victims. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney D. Rodney Brown.

James was arrested on January 7, 2016, and charged with two counts of producing child pornography, six counts of possession of child pornography, indecent solicitation of a child and sexual exploitation of a child, the Kane County State's Attorney's Office said in a statement at the time. Weiler will make his first appearance in federal court in South Bend later this week.
