RHINELANDER - Police think a Rhinelander man asked a 10-year-old girl for nude pictures.

Eighteen-year-old Mark Moore is charged with five felonies for attempted sexual assault, exposing himself to a child, and using a computer for a child sex crime.

According to court documents, Moore was staying at the same place as the girl in late October.

Moore and the girl were watching movies alone together.

He allegedly set up a Facebook account for the girl.

Moore then sent her messages asking her to get naked.

He admitted to police he asked for the pictures and told police he "was only attracted to young girls."

The girl told police he exposed himself to her.

She also said he tried to touch her, but she pushed Moore away.

Moore is in jail on a $25,000 cash bond.

He'll be back in court November 30.

WAUSAU - One artist traveled from the east coast to be a part of the 40th Birds in Art exhibit at the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau. The exhibit closes this weekend. 

"You know artists spend a lot of time by themselves, it's just the nature of being an artist," said artist Barry Van Dusen. "And then we have these intense social situations like this when we maximize our time by talking shop with each other. It's a great way to recharge your batteries I guess artistically."

Barry Van Dusen first made his way from Boston to central Wisconsin in 1992.

MADISON - Wisconsin needs more prison guards.

The Department of Corrections is implementing a new overtime policy as it deals with a shortage of workers.

Corrections officials say overtime will be assigned on a rotation system instead of forcing the newest officers to work those shifts when no one else has volunteered.

Veteran guards and sergeants will now be assigned overtime.

Corrections Secretary Ed Wall recently put the policy into effect, saying it will make prisons safer and would be fairer to all guards.

Wall in a memo said it would cut down on fatigue caused by multiple days of overtime for some employees.

The staffing shortage at Wisconsin prisons is acute with one in 10 security positions open.
