Loves Park man baited girls into porn

LOVES PARK — A Loves Park man admitted to using Facebook to lure underage girls into sending him pornographic images of themselves.

According to the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, 37-year-old Grant Wojahn faces 15 to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty in federal court Monday to producing child pornography.

Authorities say charges against Wojahn stem from several incidents that occurred over a year span. From May 2014 to April 2015, Wojahn said he lured at least seven girls between the ages of 10 and 13 to send him nude photos.

On March 20, 2015, he created a fake Facebook page and posed as a girl to lure some of his victims. He also used Messenger to send and receive explicit images and stored them on various mobile devices. He was in possession of more than 40 pornographic videos and 71 images of child pornography at the time of his arrest.

Wojahn is scheduled for sentencing on Sept. 26. R.
