Tip leads to DeKalb man’s arrest in child pornography investigation
Trottier was arrested in St. Charles before being taken to the DeKalb County Jail.
DEKALB, Ill. (WIFR) - A 71-year-old DeKalb man faces child pornography charges after a months-long investigation, according to the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office.
Steven Trottier is accused of three counts of possession of child pornography. Deputies said Trottier became a suspect when investigators received a tip in May 2023 from the Illinois Attorney General’s Office about someone in possession of child porn files.
Deputies say they seized a number of electronic devices during a search of Trottier’s home on Sept. 20.
Trottier will be in court again on Oct. 26.
