A suburban woman and man are facing charges of child pornography involving a child under the age of 13 after a “multi-week” investigation led to their arrests, Buffalo Grove Police said Monday (WGN’s Patrick Elwood reports).
Buffalo Grove Police announced Monday June 24, 2019 that a 43 year-old female suspect of Buffalo Grove and a 44 year-old male suspect of Oak Forest have been arrested as suspects related to child pornography offenses. Buffalo Grove police reported that the arrests occurred after a “multi-week investigation.”
The investigation began after DCFS received a tip from an out-of-state therapist, according to Buffalo Grove police. Kimberly Schubert, 43, of Buffalo Grove, was arrested on May 30, 2019. Buffalo Grove police say they discovered evidence to support charging Kimberly Schubert with two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under 13 years-old, and two child pornography-related charges.
Schubert’s bond was set at $1 million and was reduced to $300,000 on June 7, 2019. Schubert posted the required bond amount (10 percent = $30,000).
During the investigation, Buffalo Grove police said they determined pornographic pictures had been distributed to Jason Akai, of Oak Forest. Buffalo Grove police said Jason Akai, 44, was charged with solicitation of child pornography and production of child pornography. The victims were also under the age of 13. Police said Akai’s bond was set at $1 million and he remained in custody in Lake County Jail as of Monday at 2:45 p.m.
Both suspects have court dates set for June 27, 2019.
Police said the investigation is ongoing, and did not initially provide information regarding how the two suspects knew each other.
Kimberly Schubert is a mother of four children (two sons and two daughters) who reside in Buffalo Grove in Lake County, Illinois, according to sources.
Online sources identify Jason Akai as an employed information technology professional, who has participated in voluntary service with at least one large well-known youth organization. As of Monday afternoon, his workplace was still referring callers to his phone extension.
