A May 26 plea and arraignment hearing has been set for a 62-year-old Monticello man charged with computer child pornography in connection with alleged activities in March, according Drew County Circuit Court documents.
Russell Keith Langley is charged with one count of computer child pornography. He is alleged to have used a computer online service or internet service between the dates of March 21 and March 24 to “seduce, solicit or entice, or attempt to seduce, solicit or entice” a child or someone he believed to be a child “to engage in sexually explicit conduct,” according to a charging document filed April 1 by 10th Judicial District Prosecutor Thomas Deen.
Langley was arrested at his home on March 24. His commercial bond was set at $20,000 and he was ordered to not use the internet or social media and have no contact with certain individuals, according to court documents.
Computer child pornography is a Class B felony punishable by 5 to 20 years in prison and a maximum fine of $15,000.
The 10th Judicial District Public Defender’s Office was appointed April 6 to represent Langley.
