He was given a $40,000 cash bond after making his initial appearance in Racine Circuit Court on Wednesday afternoon. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for September 7,2016.
According to the criminal complaint on August 13, 2016 Investigators with the Racine County Sheriff’s Department working as part of the Wisconsin Internet Crimes Against Children were investigating child pornography through specific torrent files. Investigators were able to download 17 individual files connected to an IP address that through a search warrant was registered to an address where the defendant lived.
On August 30th, Investigators executed a search warrant in the 3000 block of Hamlin Ave and located the defendant in his bedroom, with a small amount of marijuana and a lap top with two monitors attached. Investigators state that a subsequent search of the computer yielded 3 graphic videos of child pornography, with girls ages 7-12 in the videos.
