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.

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.

Oh, and there are unanswered questions because this reporter is terrible.

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!
