A registered sex offender has been charged with making child pornography following an FBI search of his suburban apartment.
Forty-7-year-old David V. Tank of Wheaton appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Geraldine Soat Brown on Thursday and was ordered held without bond in the Metropolitan Correctional Center.
FBI agents said they found child pornography on an external hard drive on a computer Tank maintained in a suburban Bloomingdale apartment.
Agents of the FBI's Innocent Images Task Force said the pictures showed Tank with an underage girl. If convicted, he faces a minimum sentence of 15 years and a maximum of 30 with a possible increase of 10 years because he is a registered sex offender.
