Even though he was arrested on this charge 3 weeks ago, the Cook County State's Attorney officially charged "Radio Boy" yesterday, plus added 5 more counts of possession of child porn to the 1 count he was arrested for. From the Sun-Times website last night:

Former DJ indicted on child porn charges


September 23, 2009

A former Chicago disc jockey already awaiting trial on a 2008 indecent solicitation of a child charge was indicted for possessing child porn on Wednesday.

Michael Wawrzyniak was indicted on six counts of possession of child pornography, according to Cook County State's Attorney's office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton. He is scheduled for arraignment on Oct. 9.

Wawrzyniak, 24, of the 1700 block of South Michigan Avenue, was arrested on Sept. 2 and was initially charged with one count of felony possession of child porn, according to police. His bond was set at $50,000.

The Chicago Fugitive Apprehension Section and Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Wawrzyniak while executing a search warrant after he was named in a child porn case report, according to police.

Wawrzyniak was a part-time/weekend radio personality known on the air as "Radio Boy," but was fired from Clear Channel Radio Rhythmic Top 40 WKSC-FM (103.5) after being charged with solicitation of a child in January 2008.

He was arrested in west suburban Carol Stream when the 13-year-old he allegedly arranged to meet online turned out to be a police detective.

A DuPage County judge set bond at $150,000 after that incident.

Wawrzyniak is scheduled to appear in DuPage County Court on the indecent soliciation charges on Sept. 29.
