La Crosse man indicted for possessing child pornography

MADISON (WKBT) — A La Crosse man was indicted Wednesday with possession of child pornography by a federal grand jury in the Western District of Wisconsin.

Jeremy Hogenkamp, 45, is accused of possessing a laptop on Oct. 6 that contained visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, according to the United States Attorney’s Office. One of the images involved a child under age 12.

If convicted, Hogenkamp faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison. The charge against him is the result of an investigation by the La Crosse, Onalaska, Holmen, and Town of Campbell Police Departments and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Altman is handling the prosecution.

He was previously found guilty of two counts of possession of child pornography in 2010 in La Crosse County Circuit Court.
