A former Joliet resident who pleaded guilty to child pornography and unlawful videotaping charges will be sentenced next month.
Timothy Zak, 45, appeared in court Wednesday but his attorney, Vincent Cornelius, said he was still waiting on a sex offender evaluation to be completed.
Zak was arrested in October after police said they learned he had secretly recorded his teenage stepdaughter getting in and out of the shower. Zak was reportedly living with the teen in a Waterway Court house on the city's far west side when the videos were recorded but resided in Wheaton at the time of his arrest, according to jail records.
Police initially secured only two felony charges of unlawfully videotaping a person younger than 18 against Zak, but an indictment obtained in November tacked on the possession of child pornography charge.
Zak pleaded guilty two months later. He faces up to seven years in prison.
