URBNA - An Urbana man who allegedly had pornographic images of young boys on his computer has been charged in Champaign County Circuit Court with aggravated child pornography.
Burgess Endres, 21, who listed an address in the 1800 block of East Amber Lane, was arrested by Urbana police at his home Wednesday.
Assistant State's Attorney Steve Ziegler said Endres is alleged to have possessed and distributed computer files containing images of unknown boys under the age of 13 engaged in sex acts.
Urbana police have been investigating Endres since last summer.
Ziegler said investigators found at least 150 pornographic images on his computer hard drive during a court-ordered search Wednesday.
Because Endres allegedly shared the images, the offense is a class X felony with penalties ranging from six to 30 years in prison upon conviction.
