Downers Grove doctor pleads guilty to child porn charge

March 10, 2015

The Chicago Sun-Times reports,

A doctor from west suburban Downers Grove pleaded guilty Tuesday to possessing child pornography and now faces up to 30 years in prison.

“Child pornographers such as Mr. McMenamin attempt to justify their disgusting behavior claiming possession of child pornography is a victimless crime,” state’s attorney Robert Berlin said in a prepared statement.

“The truth is, every image and every video that Mr. McMenamin had in his possession represents an innocent victim of child pornography. These young victims have had their innocence stolen from them just to satisfy the revolting desires of sexual deviants,” Berlin said.
