Police arrested a man at a Chicago restaurant after his girlfriend allegedly found images of child pornography on his phone.
According to his now ex-girlfriend, she suspected he was cheating on her. She had found sexual conversations he had with other women on his phone in past incidents.
Upon checking the man's cellphone for evidence of cheating, she found at least five images of children, some of whom were engaging in sexual acts and others were posing in a lewd manner, according to court records. Some of the images contained children under the age of five, according to prosecutors.
The ex-girlfriend opened the "Whisper" app on the man's phone. The app is described as an "anonymous social media, allowing users to post and share photo and video messages anonymously." Prosecutors state that the accused had requested and received "at least five pictures of child pornography."
The accused also bragged on the app about being a "pedo" and having sex "with lots of young girls" between the ages of 14 and 17, prosecutors add.
