Larson facing more charges, still in treatment

Larson facing more charges, still in treatment

Former Ottawa Times photographer Doug Larson wasn’t in court Thursday for a scheduled status hearing.

The 43-year-old Ottawa man is facing additional child porn charges stemming from more images found after the ones used in the first set of indictments in February.

Larson’s lawyer, former LaSalle County State’s Attorney, Joe Navarro says his client is still undergoing treatment. Navarro is waiting on a progress update.

Larson hasn’t been given the new charges in court yet. His $150,000 bond was not increased, so he’ll remain out of jail.

A new court date was set in August for an update.
