A 25-year-old man in East Alton faces multiple charges related to producing and disseminating child pornography.
Steven A. Yon was charged Thursday with one count of producing child pornography and five counts of disseminating child pornography, according to Madison County Sheriff Robert Hertz.
One metro-east child has been identified related to Yon's production of child pornography. Investigators and social services have ensured the child is safe, according to police.
The investigation is ongoing but police have found no other evidence to suggest any other local children were used in the production of child pornography.
Yon was arrested Tuesday and remains in custody at the Madison County Jail.
