A 31-year-old Woodridge man has been indicted on child pornography charges, authorities said Friday.

Gabriel E. Saenz, of the 2400 block of Spring Street, is facing four felony counts of child pornography. He was formally indicted Thursday, according to court records.

Saenz is accused of possessing four pornographic photographs of girls younger than 13 years old. His computer was searched and he was arrested on preliminary charges in January after an online undercover investigation by Wheaton police, authorities said.

Officials confirmed Saenz once was a youth soccer coach at the Woodridge Park District but said he left two seasons ago. He has no prior criminal history in DuPage County, court records show.

Saenz was free on a $500 bond Friday and is scheduled to appear July 16 in front of Judge John Kinsella.
