Edgerton man charged with possession of child porn

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- An Edgerton man is facing five felonies for possessing child pornography.

Special agents with the Department of Justice and officers with the Edgerton Police Department executed a search warrant at Hermilo Burgos Gomez's home on Wednesday, according to the criminal complaint. Officials found numerous video files consistent with child pornography on a laptop computer they found in the home.

Gomez told agents there were approximately 10 videos of child pornography on the laptop. He also told them he has been intentionally downloading child pornography for about three years, but that he was surprised law enforcement found out he downloaded the videos. He told the agents he knew having it was illegal.

Gomez was charged on Thursday with five counts of Possession of Child Pornography. He is scheduled to have a bond hearing Friday afternoon in Rock County Circuit Court.
