A child pornography suspect from La Crosse is on probation now, but he could get decades in prison for newly-filed charges. 

Trenton Burnstad is accused of possessing videos and photos showing naked or partially-dressed girls, some as young as toddlers.

Burnstad is nearing the end of a three-year probation period for a sex crime in Monroe County, being convicted of exposing a child to ‘harmful descriptions.’
