Man with child porn gets 10 years in prison

Posted:
MADISON (WAOW) – A Marshfield man was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in federal prison after investigators discovered he had more than 3,000 images of child pornography on his computer and cell phone, a prosecutor said.

James Pearson, 54, pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography, U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil said.

Pearson was arrested last March after an undercover officer in the Marshfield Police Department downloaded 831 images of child pornography from a computer traced to Pearson's address, Vaudreuil said. A search of the man's home discovered more images, he said.

U.S. District Judge William Conley ordered Pearson to serve 30 years of supervision after he is released from prison, the prosecutor said in a statement.
