Prosecutors want to revoke probation for the Beach Park man who is on probation after police caught him with child pornography.

Police were serving an arrest warrant to Ira White for deceptive practices Jan. 5, 2010, but when they entered his residence, child pornography was playing on his home computer, according to Assistant State’s Attorney Mary Stanton.

White, 62, pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography in 2010.

He was sentenced to 30 months of probation, 120 days in jail, ordered to perform 200 public service hours and to complete sex offender and substance abuse treatments.

He was also ordered to pay restitution for writing bad checks.

The deceptive practices charge was dropped as part of the plea deal, Stanton said.

White has not finished his treatment, Stanton said at White’s hearing before Circuit Judge Mark Levitt Wednesday. He has also not paid court costs yet, Stanton said.

Levitt assigned White a public defender and set the matter over to March 21.

White could be resentenced if Stanton’s petition to revoke probation is granted.

White could have spent up to five years in prison for the child pornography charge and up to three years in prison for deceptive practices.
