LAKE GENEVA- A federal grand jury has charged a man from Lake Geneva with receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography, according to a press release by U.S. attorney's office.

31-year-old Donald J. Vanderbloomen is accused of receiving computer images and movies constituting child pornography in April, 2007.  That charge carries a minimum of five years in prison and a maximum of life in prison, with a possible fine up to $250,000 and life term of supervised release.

The second criminal count alleges that on May 8, 2007, Vanderbloomen possessed images and movies constituting child pornography.

If convicted of this offense, Vanderbloomen would face up to 10 years in prison. He also would face a fine of up to $250,000 and supervised release for the rest of his life.

The case was the result of an investigation by the Washington County Sheriff's Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the case had originally been charged by the Washington County District Attorney's Office, according to the press release.
