- Albert Chagnon was released into Oneida County on October 7th. But now, he's back in jail because someone found a booklet he allegedly made. The booklet is filled with photos of young Northwoods girls.
Lieutenant Terry Hook from the Oneida County Sheriff's Office says the booklet has photos of more than 250 girls. He allegedly cut those photos out of The Lakeland Times newspaper. Lt. Hook says the girls pictured were infants to 12 years old. There are allegedly 190 photos in the booklet.
Lt. Hook says Chagnon had a print subscription to the newspaper while he was serving his sentence in a state prison in Oshkosh.
Some of the photos have names and ages on them. Lt. Hook also says pornographic material is written next to the pictures.
The Oneida County Sheriff's Office will try to identify all of the girls in the photos and notify their parents.
They say the booklet was found while Chagnon was still in prison. He was still released on probation on October 7th and transferred back to Rhinelander under supervision. One day later, he was back in jail.
The Oneida County Sheriff's Office will have a meeting next week to talk about this incident. It'll be at the Minocqua Public Library on October 29th at 4:30 p.m..
Chagnon is a sex offender because he emailed a co-worker child pornography.
The Oneida County Sheriff's Office says everyone is currently safe because he's in the Winnebago County Jail. He's also being monitored by a GPS device.
The Oshkosh Police Department is investigating Chagnon and the booklet. They have jurisdiction because the booklet was found while Chagnon was in prison in Oshkosh.
