ATTORNEY GENERAL INVESTIGATION RESULTS IN ARREST OF ST. CHARLES MAN ON CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CHARGES

Chicago – Attorney General Lisa Madigan today joined with the St. Charles Police Department to announce the arrest of Scott J. Nuxoll, 20, of St. Charles for allegedly disseminating child pornography over the Internet.

Noxull was arrested late yesterday and charged with 3 Counts of Child Pornography with Intent to Disseminate, a Class 1 Felony. Madigan’s High Tech Crimes Bureau works to identify the dissemination of pornographic images of children ranging in age from infants to teens. Working collaboratively with the St. Charles Police Department their recent findings lead to yesterday’s arrest. The Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office is prosecuting the case.

Noxull was held overnight at the St. Charles Police Holding Facility and transported to bond call this morning at the Kane County Correctional Facility. Bond was set at $70,000. Unable to post the required 10 percent, Mr. Nuxoll was remanded into the custody of the Kane County Correctional Facility.

“My office works aggressively with law enforcement officials to combat child pornography shared over the Internet,” said Madigan. “We are pleased that our partnership with the St. Charles Police Department has resulted in this arrest.”

The Attorney General’s office, through a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, operates the Illinois Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, one of 59 task forces across the nation designed to investigate child exploitation crimes and to provide Internet safety education. In 2007, the Illinois ICAC task force provided internet safety training and education to over 20,000 parents, children and professionals and responded to over 575 cyber tips received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The public is reminded that these charges are merely accusations. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
