A Naperville man has been sentenced to 45 days in DuPage County Jail, after being found guilty of storing hundreds of pornographic images of children in his home computer.
David A. Denofrio, 39, was convicted in DuPage County Court of one of 10 felony charges of aggravated possession of child pornography. The other counts were dismissed.
Judge Daniel P. Guerin on Wednesday sentenced Denofrio to jail.
Denofrio was also ordered to register with Illinois State Police as a convicted sex offender. He was also placed on 2 1/2 years of sex offender probation and ordered to pay fines and court costs totaling $1,965.
Guerin also barred Denofrio from participating in any event involving those under the age of 18. The judge specifically prohibited Denofrio from dressing in an Easter Bunny costume, distributing candy to trick-or-treaters on Halloween and working as a department store Santa Claus or wearing such a costume during the holidays.
Naperville police arrested Denofrio just after noon on Sept. 23, 2011 at his home in The Ponds of Naperville apartment complex, at 75th Street and Modaff Road in Naperville.
Sgt. Gregg Bell said members of the department’s High Technology Crimes Unit last year received information Denofrio was involved in child pornography. They obtained a search warrant based on that information, Bell said.
Denofrio was not home at the time the warrant was executed. While there investigators examined a computer and found “hundreds of images” of children engaged in sexual acts, Bell said.
Court documents indicated Denofrio had no significant local police record.
