CHICAGO - A Barrington man has been arrested on charges of Dissemination of Child Pornography, a Class X felony.
The arrest follows an investigation prompted by a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Search warrants were executed, leading to the discovery of explicit videos involving children under 13 years old on Anthony Demonte's social media account, according to the Cook County Sheriff's Office.
