Teacher pleads not guilty to pornography charges

by

WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) --

The Wausau teacher and coach accused of possessing child pornography has entered pleas in Marathon County court.

50-year-old Michael Switalski appeared Monday, where he entered not-guilty pleas to all 32 charges.

Switalski has been on administrative leave from Wausau Newman High School since the allegations surfaced in March. Prosecutors say he had several images obtained from a Canadian company that were purchased and sent to his home.

When police raided the company’s files, they found several customers including Switalski. Investigators say they seized 96 photographs and a dozen videos showing naked underaged boys.

Switalski is free on a 35-thousand dollar cash bond. Defense attorneys plan to file several more motions in the next ten days. A status conference has been scheduled before the judge on September 4th.
