Rantoul man sentenced to probation for unlawful video recording

URBANA — A Rantoul man has been sentenced to 24 months of probation after he pleaded guilty to unlawful video recording.

Davien Emling, 24, who listed an address in the 1100 block of Falcon Drive, pleaded guilty last week to one count of unlawful video recording.

Judge Tom Difanis sentenced Emling to two years of probation; to submit blood, saliva or tissue specimens to the state police or Illinois Department of Corrections; to obtain an evaluation for sex offender treatment; to follow any recommendations made during the evaluation; to have no contact with his victim; and to pay fines and court costs.

As part of a plea agreement, a second charge of possession of child pornography was dismissed.

According to a police report, Emling was arrested after Rantoul police found a computer at his home that contained videos taken of a teen he knew that were taken without her knowledge with the use of a computer webcam.

According to a police report, officers learned about the videos in September when they were called to Emling's home for a domestic dispute.
