ILLINOIS -- A state representative has been charged with possession of child pornography. 66-year old Keith Farnham, of Elgin, is accused of having at least two videos of child pornography on both his personal and office computers.

Authorities have linked an email account used by Farnham to a child pornography-trading website. The emails contained images of children from infants to 10-years old. Farnham resigned last month.
