Bond Set for Lombard Man Charged with Possession of Child Pornography

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin and Lombard Chief of Police Roy Newton announced today Possession of Child Pornography charges have been filed against a Lombard man who is currently on federal pre-trial services after pleading guilty to possessing child pornography. Michael Luna, 30 (d.o.b. 1/6/1991) of the 2N100 block of Fairfield Avenue, appeared in Bond Court this morning where Judge Robert Miller set bond at $100,000 with 10% to apply. Luna is charged with ten counts of Possession of Child Pornography, a Class 2 Felony. He is scheduled to appear in Federal Court on April 28, 2021 for sentencing.  
            On March 12, 2021, as part of their ongoing efforts against child pornography and with the assistance of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Lombard Police executed a search warrant at Luna’s residence. It is alleged that the search warrant yielded multiple images of child pornography. Later that same day, Lombard offers observed Luna leaving his residence in a vehicle driven by another person. Officers executed a traffic stop on the vehicle and took Luna into custody at this time.     
            “The allegations that Mr. Luna was in possession of child pornography while awaiting sentencing on the same charges are very disturbing,” Berlin said. “I would like to thank the Lombard Police Department for their outstanding work on this case as well as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children for their assistance. I would also like to thank Assistant State’s Attorney Patrick Miner for his efforts in protecting the innocent victims of child pornography.”         
            “I would like to thank the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children for their assistance and commitment to protecting the innocent victims of child pornography,” Newton said. “I would also like to thank members of my investigations team as well as the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office for their work that led to the charges filed against Mr. Luna.”     
            Luna’s next court appearance is scheduled for April 5, 2021 for arraignment in front of Judge John Kinsella.         
            Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendant’s guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the government’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
