MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Chicago-area man is charged with possessing child pornography after police found questionable photos on a phone he left behind in a Madison hotel room.

According to the complaint, 50-year-old Cesar G. Munive, of North Riverside, Ill., told police he downloaded images from the Internet onto a phone that was found last September by a hotel maid after he checked out.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1lwYyxX ) police first found pictures of girls between 7 and 12, in underwear or swimsuits, in suggestive poses. A detective later turned up nude photos of girls as young as 3. A detective concluded the phone was used almost solely for browsing pornographic websites.

Possession of child pornography carries a mandatory minimum of three years in Wisconsin.

Online court records don't list an attorney.
