MADISON, Wis. -

A 36-year-old man from Viroqua was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for distribution of child pornography.

Jeremy Hogenkamp has been in custody since he pleaded guilty to that crime on September 25, 2012.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice said a search warrant was executed as part of an undercover Internet operation at Hogenkamp’s home on February 4, 2010. Agents found computers and electronic storage media containing child pornography.

The Department of Justice said while the federal search warrant was issued, Hogenkamp was facing La Crosse County charges for possession of child pornography. Hogenkamp declined to have the federal case resolved in connection with the state charges. He was sentenced in La Crosse County to four months in jail and 10 years probation for possession of child pornography charges. He has completed serving the jail sentence.
