Shorewood Child Porn Producer Pleads Guilty, Faces 30 Years in Fed Pen

Shorewood IT guy Christopher Kice pleaded guilty to both producing and possessing child pornography.

After nearly a year and a half in jail, a Shorewood IT guy copped a plea to child pornography charges.

The guilty plea made by 42-year-old Christopher Kice in federal court was not part of an agreement by prosecutors. He may still be hit with the maximum 30-year prison term when he is sentenced May 8.

FBI agents and Shorewood police officers took Kice into custody at his Callaway Drive home after his employer, a Chicago-area law firm, tipped the feds to the possibility he was possessing of child pornography.

A forensic investigation of Kice's computer equipment turned up pornographic images of young girls, according to an affidavit penned by an FBI agent. Some of the photographs were taken in Kice's home, according to the affidavit, and show the girls being fondled by the hand of an off-camera adult.

Kice has been in custody at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago since his arrest. After his sentencing, he will be packed off to a federal prison.

Hope the pervert gets his testicles gnawed off by rats !

I agree, Mary. He deserves the worst that prison has to offer!

Hey, Joseph! Thanks for the update on this case! But there are a few things I'm not getting about the article. What does it mean when you said, "The guilty plea... was not part of an agreement by prosecutors?" Does that mean that Kice just plead guilty without reduction to the potential time he would serve? And what about other possible charges? It seems that the FBI was investigating this whole thing for a long time and it seems that they haven't come up with any more than they started with. I'm not criticizing the FBI, but it seems that with someone with Kice's lack of character and morality there would've been something more to charge him with. What about possession of child porn? And what about sexual abuse of the children in the pictures taken in Kice's home? And what about that point, too: in your article, you stated that the pictures taken in Kice's home "show the girls being..." as in plural, but articles in other news sites said there was one girl. What I'm getting at is if there were multiple victims and if so why isn't anyone finding them to further the investigation and charge Kice with crimes against them? I'd really like to know a few things about all this that don't make sense to me and you might be aware of. Hopefully, Kice will get the max for at least these charges, but in this case, more would be better. Thanks for keeping up with this story, Joseph! And for keeping us updated! You do a lot to keep us aware of the problems in our area!

Flora Dora and Mary Pearce, I couldn't agree with you more! This type of creature needs to be locked up! If I had my way, he'd never get out of prison! I could go on and on, but what's the point? He's filth and there is no place for him or those like him in a civilized society.

Great points, Vincent! I am eager to see Joseph's response. Some clarity would be nice.

Has anyone noticed that Chris Kice worked for a "Chicago-area law firm?" I am now wondering if this explains why there are so many unanswered questions here. Is this a situation where, because of his contacts, he is going to receive a minimal sentence? This is starting to look like a disturbing possibility.

The law firm fired him immediately, and has no contact with him. There was one girl in the photos in his home, not multiple. He was less of a predator than is suggested, but not a good guy by any means. And, because of his idiocy in the last year and a half, he will be in jail for a very long time.
Alphonse Green January 14, 2013 at 04:48 PM
Oh, and there are unanswered questions because this reporter is terrible.
noelle January 14, 2013 at 05:54 PM
Alphonse Green thank you for the information. It would be nice if Joseph would reply to Vincent! I believe that the law firm he worked for wants nothing to do with him anymore but, I wonder if he has or had contacts with other firms through his job? This seems like a disturbing possibility. If, as is stated, even one girl is "being fondled by the hand of an off-camera adult" this tells me he is indeed a predator and one that surely deserves 30 years in jail!! (In fact, more would be nice.) I am a little baffled in other words as to why you would say he was "less of a predator than is suggested, but not a good guy by any means?" Hopefully at some point, Joseph will reply and again, thank you for the information!

Alphonse Green, I forgot to ask you about the last sentence in your post. I am curious as to why you said "due to his idiocy in the last year and a half, he will be in jail for a very long time?" Hasn't he been in jail for a year and a half? Thank you again-still no comment from anyone else!
