An Edgewater man has been charged with the possession and distribution of child pornography. In all, he is facing four felony charges including one of possessing sexual images of children under the age of 13 years.

On Wednesday, July 13, a search warrant was executed at the home of 43-year-old George Alfred Schneider of the 5200 block of N. Sheridan Rd. The investigation determined that Schneider was ‘responsible for disseminating images and movies of underage children engaged in sexual acts via his computer.’

It was also determined that he shared those images electronically via the internet.

On Thursday, Schneider turned himself into police, and was subsequently charged. He is expected to appear in court Friday.
