Peoria officer faces child porn charges

Peoria police officer John McCavitt faces child pornography charges. His criminal investigations continue. McCavitt posted bond and was released after being charged with 10 counts of child pornography. 

Police reportedly found the material while investigating a separate alleged sexual assault last year. McCavitt was found not guilty of sexual assault charges earlier this year on that matter. He was arrested again in March for another issue, Unlawful VideoTaping, a felony charge.  Police say McCavitt will remain on unpaid leave pending conclusion of the criminal and internal investigations.
