A former suburban Chicago mayor has been sentenced to 30 days in prison for possession of child pornography.
Seventy-one-year-old Tom Adams was accused of having child pornography on his home computer and distributing it via e-mail.
In February, Adams pleaded guilty to 16 counts of child pornography possession. As part of a plea deal, the charges of dissemination of child pornography were dropped.
A judge on Monday said Adams must also pay a $10,000 fine, undergo psychological treatment and do 200 hours of community service. He must also register as a sex offender.
Adams, the former mayor of Green Oaks, was also the former Lake County GOP chairman.
His attorney says Adams is a good man who had a lapse in judgment.
