Onalaska man charged with possession of child pornography
An Onalaska man is arrested for possessing child pornography.
Michael Abbott, 32, was taken into custody yesterday after the Onalaska Police Department executed a warrant with the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
On Wednesday, Abbott was charged with a felony count of possession of child pornography.
According to the criminal complaint, a Department of Justice agent reviewed 12 images and videos recovered from an external hard drive at Abbott's apartment. They were consistent with child porn. Abbott admitted to investigators he possesses more than 1,000 images.
A La Crosse County judge set a $5,000 cash bond for Abbott.
