Rock Springs man sentenced for distributing child pornography
Madison, Wis. - John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Anthony Bonham, 44, Rock Springs, Wis., was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Barbara B. Crabb to 10 years in federal prison for distribution of child pornography. Bonham pled guilty to this crime on April 24, 2012 and has remained in custody since his guilty plea.
A search warrant, premised on an undercover Internet operation, was executed at Bonham's Rock Springs home on November 16, 2011. Agents found computers and electronic storage media containing thousands of child pornography images.
The charges against Bonham were the result of an investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with the crucial assistance of the Sauk County Sheriff's Department. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy M. O'Shea.
