A 25-year-old Walworth man is accused of possessing child pornography and displaying the contraband online through his web cam.

Parker G. Voltz, 318 Howard St., has been charged with two counts of possession of child pornography and one count of sexual exploitation of a child.

Each charge of possession of child pornography carries a maximum sentence of 25 years imprisonment and $100,000 in fines. The charge also carries a minimum penalty of three years of initial confinement.

The charge of sexual exploitation of a child carries a maximum penalty of 40 years imprisonment and $100,000 in fines. It also carries a five year minimum term of initial confinement.

Voltz is free from custody after posting a $10,000 cash bond on April 17. He is set for a preliminary hearing on June 7.

According to the criminal complaint:

On April 16, special agents with the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation executed a search warrant on Voltz's home.

At the home an agent took a MacBook Computer. A graphic sexual image of a prepubescent boy was found on the computer. A sexual video was also discovered of a toddler.

When Voltz was interviewed by the special agent Voltz said he first found child pornography in the summer of 2012. Voltz told the agent that he had both video and images of child pornography.

Voltz also told the special agent that he spends time online talking with people and getting advice on how to find child pornography.

He also allegedly admitted that he would play videos from his computer through a web cam for other people who would watch the videos.

Voltz told police he would do this every couple of days since August 2012.
