The State took just one day to present its witnesses and evidence in the trial of a 56-year old Vandalia man charged with three counts of possession of child pornography of a sadistic nature depicting a victim under the age of 13. Opening statements by State’s Attorney Josh Morrison and defense attorney Robert Bas began the second day of trial in the case of the people vs. William Frakes on Tuesday after Monday’s first day was spent entirely on jury selection and jury instructions. Following opening statements, Morrison began the state’s case by calling witnesses Angel Kopp and Allison Frakes, the daughter and wife of the defendant. The state then moved to questioning of Sergeant Scott Workman of the Greenville Police Department who also works with the Illinois Attorney General’s Office and the U.S. Secret Service concerning Internet Crimes Against Children. Workman testified that he received a tip from the Center for Missing and Exploited Children about images uploaded to a Flickr account. After beginning his investigation in September 2015, Workman found the account was associated with two email addresses that were related to Frake’s cell phone number and zip code. A search warrant was procured and Workman was present for the search. Workman also testified that a second search warrant was issued and served and at that time a Samsung cell phone was recovered. Workman continued his testimony by saying that he could not get the phone to power up and the phone was sent to Joseph Purfield of the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office who had a higher level of training than Workman. Purfield was called to testify and explained the process by which he performs a phone dump where information both physical information on the phone and information that had been deleted off of the phone. During Purfield’s testimony, the three images Purfield found on the cell phone entered into evidence were shown to the members of the jury with each depicting a female reasonably known to be under the age of 13. Following the testimony of Purfield and the recalling of Workman, the State then announced it was resting its case. After a sidebar between the two parties and Judge Kevin Parker, it was determined the trial would go into recess until 9am this morning at which time the defense will begin to present its case.
