Weston man pleads not guilty to 48 porn counts

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) - A 51-year-old Weston man who prosecutors say had hundreds of pictures of child pornography on his smart phone pleaded not guilty Thursday to 48 felony counts of possession of child pornography, according to online court records.

Thomas Beer
was charged in December following a search of his apartment that was done after a referral from a child crimes unit in Fairfax, Va., the criminal complaint said.

No trial date was immediately set.

A Marathon County circuit judge originally ordered Beer jailed on $75,000 cash. Judge Greg Grau granted a defense request Thursday to modify the bond to $20,000 cash with the conditions that Beer have no contact with minors and that he possess no device that can access the internet, online court records said.
