TREMPEALEAU COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) - A Whitehall man has been charged with four counts of child pornography in Trempealeau County.

Court records show Zachary Karberg ,32, has been charged with four counts of possession of child pornography.

The criminal complaint says a cybertip was sent to the Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Department regarding a Yahoo email address.

Investigators reviewed 55 images and one video that were associated with the email address that was linked to Karberg.

Karberg told officials that he was aware that these files contained child pornography and that some of the images were “very disturbing” to him.

He went on to say that after accessing the images on his phone, he emailed the images to himself to get them off his phone. He said he intended to report the person who sent him those images but had since forgotten about the images and had not reported them to law enforcement.

Karberg is being held on a $5,000 cash bond.
