John P. Kerr, 49, of the 3200 block of Ezra Avenue was arrested Friday after police found an extensive amount of child pornography images in his home, according to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.

Police also learned during the investigation that Kerr allegedly sexually assaulted two female victims for a period of time about four years ago. The victims were under the age of 13 at the time of the assaults.

Officers obtained the search warrant after a March child pornography investigation.

Kerr is scheduled to appear in court May 13 and his bond was set at $750,000.
