Suburban doctor faces child porn charges

A long-time physician in suburban Downers Grove faces charges for possession and distribution of child pornography.

Police arrested 67-year old Edward J. McMenamin Thursday night.

Police began investigating McMenamin earlier this year after receiving a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Bond was set at $500,000.

McMenamin is the former chairman of the Department of Family Practice at Good Shepherd Hospital.
