Marshfield man pleads guilty to federal child porn charges

by

MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) -- A Marshfield man is pleading guilty to federal child porn charges.

Prosecutors say police tracked down 53-year-old James Pearson after catching him using someone else's Internet connection to download thousands of images of child pornography. When police searched his residence, they found those images on computers and cellphones.

Pearson admitted in court that he had downloaded the images at his plea hearing. Pearson has previous sex convictions, including several in Wood County, as well as South Carolina. He also failed to register as a sex offender when he moved back to Marshfield.

Pearson now faces 10 to 20 years in prison and a lifetime sex offender registration.

He'll be back in court for sentencing February 5th.
