A 35-year-old Godfrey man is now charged in federal court with Receipt of Child Pornography.  Adam B. Hill was originally arrested in early July after he allegedly was spotted driving by a swim club on Greenwood Lane with what appeared to be a video camera, filming kids at the pool. 

Deputies with the Madison County Sheriff’s Department took the information about the vehicle in question and found Hill at a friends house.  Hill voluntarily turned over his camera to police.  Authorities searched his car and found a cannabis pipe and he was taken into custody.  Deputies also seized a computer during the investigation and detectives later allegedly found images of child pornography.  Police say the images appear to have been downloaded and were not of any local kids.  Hill was charged with five counts of child pornography in Madison County.  If convicted on the federal charge, he could be sentenced to 5 – 20 years in prison.
