Lake Villa Man Slapped With Child Porn Charges in Light of Arrest Last Year

(Lake Villa, IL)  A Lake Villa area man who was already facing charges from an arrest last year, is now facing several new charges. Lake County Sheriff’s officials say Wilbur Maltby was hit with two counts of unlawful video recording at a residence back in November of 2021, after a search warrant was executed on his residence. Further investigation of electronic items that were retrieved during the warrant turned up numerous lewd photos and videos, including those of minors. Those discoveries have led to a 15-count grand jury indictment for Maltby that includes charges of manufacturing and possessing child pornography, as well as additional counts of unauthorized video recording. Maltby does not appear in Lake County Jail records, but he is due in court on January 24th.
