    Former HPHS Sub Charged with Possession of Child Pornography

    Steven Habay, 40, of Highland Park, was arrested this spring for posting the rants online and charged with cyber stalking and harassment by electronic device. In the course of the police investigation, officers seized Habay’s computer for evidence. A forensic examiner with the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office was gathering evidence from the computer recently and discovered images of child pornography, police said Monday. The images appear to be from Internet searches and not ones that Habay made himself, police said.

    Ex-substitute teacher must stay in home pending child porn case

    While he awaits trial, [Steven] Habay has been on confinement at the home he shares with his parents in Highland Park. On Wednesday, his attorney, Gregory Nikitas, asked Judge Daniel Shanes to modify Habay’s bail, allowing him to leave the home for short periods. Shanes said his client hasn’t violated the 24-hour curfew, has been undergoing voluntary psychiatric evaluations, is on new medication and is under his parents’ supervision. "He has shown a track record of compliance," Nikitas told the judge.

    Shanes denied the request and told Habay he should be happy to be home while he awaits trial. The judge warned Habay that he will be sent to jail if he gives Shanes a reason.
