A Menomonie man was arrested Monday and charged with felony possession of child pornography.
Michael L. Jaenke, 37, 1720 Eighth Street East, is a registered sex offender who has prior convictions for first degree sexual assault of a child and possession of child pornography.
After a search of Jaenke’s home on Monday, MPD’s computer forensics analysts found sexually explicit images of children on his computer. Jaenke’s arrest was the result of a cooperative online investigation begun in January by the Menomonie and Eau Claire police departments as well as the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
Jaenke is set to appear in Dunn County Circuit Court on Friday.
