A 27-year-old Burbank man awaiting trial on sexual assault charges now faces charges for allegedly possessing child pornography.
A statement issued by police officials yesterday to the Burbank Beat (and posted on the Burbank Police Facebook page), laid out the history of the charges brought against Daniel A. Maslo of the 8600 block of South Nottingham Avenue.
According to the statement, Maslo was arrested in June 2013 on charges of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and criminal sexual assault. On July 30, 2013 a source contacted Burbank police after finding a digital camera card belonging to Maslo containing nude photos of a child. Officers later determined the child was a relative of Maslo.
With this new information, detectives working with the Cook County Assistant States Attorney’s Office began an extensive investigation to build a more significant case against Maslo. He was subsequently charged with several counts relating to possession of child pornography as a result of this follow-up investigation.
Maslo who is in custody at the Cook County Jail awaiting trial on the sexual assault charges, was brought to the Bridgeview Courthouse on May 23, 2014 for a bond hearing on two counts of aggravated child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. Circuit Judge Peter Felice set Maslo’s bond at $600,000.
Aggravated child pornography is a Class X felony punishable by six to 30 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
