A Fox Lake man was ordered to spend 30 months on probation Tuesday after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography.

Kristopher Kirk, 27, will also have to complete any sex offender treatment his probation officer deems appropriate.

Lake County Assistant State's Attorney Mary Stanton said Kirk, of 585 Blue Springs Lane, was arrested Oct. 24 after police received a tip from someone with whom Kirk was corresponding.

A Gurnee woman told police she was chatting with Kirk on the Internet when Kirk mentioned his sexual preferences included children.

The woman called Gurnee police, who passed on the information to Fox Lake police.

Kirk's laptop computer was confiscated and a search revealed dozens of images of children performing sex acts.

Circuit Judge Victoria Rossetti also ordered Kirk to perform 200 hours of community service.

Kirk could have faced up to five years in prison if convicted after a trial.
