URBANA — An Urbana man who allegedly sexually molested a girl in his care and videotaped the activity is in police custody.

Kinzie Lee Schwab, 35, who listed an address in the 100 block of Glover Street, is expected to be formally charged Wednesday with child pornography and criminal sexual assault.

State’s Attorney Julia Rietz said the alleged victim revealed last week what was happening to a school counselor, who is a mandated reporter.

Urbana police began investigating and obtained a court order to search Schwab’s home computers and phones.

After locating incriminating video, including activity involving him and the alleged victim, police arrested Schwab at his home Tuesday. He declined to talk with investigators.

Police believe the activity has been going on for more than a year.
