David J. Von BergenA Godfrey man has been charged with four counts of Child Pornography after investigators with the Madison County Sheriffs Department were made aware of his alleged activity.  33-year-old David J. Von Bergen was taken into custody last Friday following a search of his home in the 7,700 block of Humbert Road.  Evidence was allegedly seized during the search that led to the conclusion Von Bergen was involved in the distribution of child porn.

One count relates to the distribution of child pornography, while the other three are possession charges.  Madison County Sheriff’s Department Captain Mike Dixon says it does not appear at this time he was involved in producing the porn.
