Police claim they recently discovered that a convicted sex offender was in possession of child pornography. Defendant Sean Whippler, 29, allegedly admitted he possessed such material in the past, but he “adamantly denied finding sexual gratification from them,” according to cops in a WTVO report.

He is currently on the Illinois sex offender registry for a 2019 conviction of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. As part of a plea deal, Whippler was sentenced to 180 days behind bars (with 70 days credit time served) and four years of probation for abusing a girl who was younger than age 13, according to the outlet at the time. The abuse lasted several years, authorities said.
