MADISON, Wis. -

A Viroqua man has been sentenced for distribution of child pornography.

Jeremy Hogenkamp, 36, was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Barbara B. Crabb to 10 years in federal prison.

Hogenkamp pleaded guilty on Sept. 25, 2012 and has remained in custody since his guilty plea.

A search warrant, premised on an undercover Internet operation, was executed at Hogenkamp's Viroqua home on February 4, 2010. Agents found computers and electronic storage media containing child pornography, according to a U.S. Department of Justice news release.

At the time of the federal search warrant on Hogenkamp's Viroqua home, he was facing La Crosse County charges of possession of child pornography. Hogenkamp declined to have the federal case resolved in connection with these state charges and 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.

The charges against Hogenkamp were the result of parallel investigations conducted by the FBI and the Toronto Police Department in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
