A Chicago chiropractor was arrested Thursday and charged with possessing child pornography.

Neil Sussman, 59, faces two Class 2 felony counts of possession of child pornography, with depictions of a child under 13 and a child under 18, according to a statement from the Cook County State's Attorney's office.

A chiropractor since 1981, Sussman's license was still active as of Friday and he has never been disciplined, according to the state's Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.

Sussman, of the 5400 block of North Sheridan Road, was arrested Thursday after officers executed a search warrant at his home, prosecutors said. He had become the target of an investigation by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

During the search, investigators found a laptop computer, and a forensic review of the computer revealed numerous video files depicting young children engaging in a variety of sex acts, prosecutors said.

Judge Israel Desierto ordered Sussman held on a $50,000 bond Friday. He is next scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 7. If convicted, he faces up to 14 years in prison, prosecutors said.
