MADISON, Wis. -

Bail was set Friday for a 22-year-old Madison man who investigators say had child pornography on his computer.

Brandon Finch was arrested Feb. 10 and appeared in court facing four counts of possession of child pornography.

A criminal complaint states that before investigators searched his computer, Finch admitted to investigators they would find child pornography on the hard drive.

Bail was set at $5,000, and Finch is ordered to not have contact with children.

If convicted, Finch could face a minimum of 12 years in prison.

Oregon School District officials informed parents of students at the Little Angels Christian Preschool program Tuesday that a former employee of the church was arrested and accused of taking inappropriate pictures of children.

The Little Angels Christian Preschool program is inside the People's United Methodist Church.

An email from the school district to parents says investigators are looking into allegations that Finch took inappropriate pictures of children during church-related activities.

The criminal complaint filed against Finch doesn’t mention anything about Finch’s connection to or activities with the church.
