New Federal Child Sex Charges Against McHenry Deputy
Pyle has been on paid leave since a McHenry County warrant went out on him for predatory criminal sexual assault of a child in January. Pyle was arrested Tuesday and is being held until a preliminary and detention hearing in Rockford Friday.
According to an FBI complaint and affidavit against Pyle alleging aggravated sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children, a man being investigated for kid porn near Kankakee had images received from Internet screen names investigators were able to connect to Pyle's phone number. According to the affidavit when the victim in the pictures was identified and interviewed he said Pyle had molested him "on multiple occasions" from the time he was eight years old.
Tuesday's complaint and court proceedings weren't retrievable from the U.S. Court electronic records base until this morning. The complaint and affidavit can be read here now but, be warned, they are EXTREMELY offensive: http://www.scribd.com/doc/102938961/Pyle-Complaintfederal
