Former State Representative Keith Farnham is considering a plea deal in the federal child pornography case against him.

Farnham is accused of emailing videos of children being molested.

He resigned after his home and office in Elgin were raided in March, citing unspecified health issues.

Farnham is under house arrest with an electronic monitoring bracelet.  He is also barred from using the internet or having any contact with children under the age of 18.

A judge gave his attorneys until September to reach a deal with prosecutors, or the case will go to trial.
