Marshfield man charged with child porn, sex offender violations

by

MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WSAU) -- A Marshfield man has been charged with possessing child pornography and for failing to update his sex offender registration. The U.S Attorney’s Office claims 53-year-old James E. Pearson had a computer and a cellphone that contained photos of minors engaging in explicit conduct. He is also charged with failing to contact authorities when he moved to Marshfield from South Carolina in 2011.

If convicted, Pearson would serve between 10 and 20 years in federal prison on each possession of child pornography charge, as a repeat offender. He could also get up to 10 additional years for failing to update his sex offender registration.

The prosecution of this case has been assigned to Assistant U.S. Attorney Julie Pfluger.
