ROCKFORD — A former McHenry County sheriff’s deputy who was that department’s representative on the state’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force was sentenced today to 50 years in federal prison for child sexual abuse and exploitation.

The defendant, GREGORY M. PYLE, 39, of Crest Hills, Ill., formerly of Crystal Lake, Ill., was also placed on lifetime supervision after release from custody by U.S. District Court Judge Frederick J. Kapala, who imposed the sentence in Federal Court in Rockford.

Pyle, a sheriff’s deputy for more than a decade, pleaded guilty on Jan. 3 of this year, admitting that he crossed a state line with intent to engage in a sexual act with a minor. [See what the mother of the child said here.]

Today’s sentencing hearing will be completed at 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 21, 2014, when restitution and special conditions of supervised release will be imposed.

“For over five years, [Pyle] was entrusted with the efforts of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office to protect children from exploitation and abuse.

“When he knew he was under investigation, [Pyle] successfully obstructed investigators determining the full scope of his criminal conduct,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael D. Love argued in requesting a 50-year sentence.

In pleading guilty, Pyle admitted that on Dec. 13, 2008, he had custody of a child under 12 years of age, when he drove the child from Crystal Lake, Ill. to Milwaukee, Wis., intending to engage in sexual acts with the child and to produce visual depictions of the sexual conduct.

Pyle admitted that he stayed overnight in a Milwaukee hotel and engaged in sexual acts with the child that were sadistic, masochistic, and violent.

The defendant produced images of the child engaged in these sexual acts and later distributed the images over the Internet.

The sentencing was announced by Zachary T. Fardon, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, and Robert J. Holley, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The Illinois State Police, the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department, and the Illinois Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce assisted in the investigation.

The government was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael D. Love.


U.S. Attorney’s Press Release about Greg Pyle’s 50-Year Sentence — 11 Comments

  1. Jiddu was right.

    We’ve become ‘well adjusted to a profoundly sick society’.

  2. How do you know that Nygren knew it was happening Duncan.

    As usual you spout off about your conspiracy theories without factual knowledge.

    I sure hope you can prove your allegation that he somehow knew his was happening to a child and did nothing about it.

    That would never happen.

    This is one of the most ridiculous statements you have ever made.

    I sure hope Nygren sees your allegation and goes after you in the courts.

    I think you should go make yourself some popcorn.

  3. Bill I have the factual knowledge…and they are not conspiracy theories.

    By the way, I don’t like popcorn…..

    Hey Bill, your popcorn awaits you.

  4. Read all the background on this case, Bill. It sure seems they would have to be completely blind and deaf to not “know” they were aiding and abetting.

    Think about the “normalcy bias” that folks are struggling with nowadays.

    Seems like that might have been in play.

    Pure evil is hard to discern when you’re in a Pollyanna world.

  5. Remember this individuals sick politically motivated website thst spewed venom and hate.

    That wasnt a red flag?

  6. Remember 2 years ago when Deputy Milliman from McHenry County Sheriffs Office testified about the 2 little african american kids being abused, and Nygren made threats against Milliman if the word ever got out,…

    Well Deputy Milliman stood up to the plate and spoke the truth, causing him to lose his job from Nygren and Zinke. …..

    I wonder if that little kid would not have been violently abused by Pyle if Nygren would have done something then ?

  7. Maybe someone should have listened when Zane Seipler said that Pyle should have a psyc evaluation. Instead they tried to say Seipler was crazy.

  8. Nygren and Zinke have played that game with a lot of people over the years.

    They empowered themselves, while they made their victims powerless to do anything.

    They are, in fact, experts at their own games, as they have had many years to perfect their skills.

    I personally, know of other cases where pedophiles existed and Nygren called it a family matter.
