Story By Newswatch 12 Newsteam

MADISON - A Marshfield man will be in prison for the next 10 years for possession of
child pornography.

54 year old James Pearson pled guilty to the charge in November.

Last March, an undercover Marshfield police officer was able to download
hundreds of child porn pictures from a computer traced to Pearson.

A search warrant was issued.

Police found almost 3-thousand child pornography images on his computer and
cell phone.

After serving 10 years in federal prison, a judge ordered Pearson to be
supervised for 30 years once he gets out.

ST. GERMAIN - After your big Thanksgiving meal later this week, you might be looking for a way to get active.

St. Germain will be hosting its holiday light parade and Jingle Bell 3K Race this Saturday.

People will pull out their lawn chairs and wool blankets to watch floats take over downtown.

The St. Germain A-T-V club will also be collecting food along the parade route for the Vilas County Food Pantry.

"St. Germain has always had the tradition of the town tree lighting and caroling and stuff like that. We just amped it up and taken it one step further. It is really neat to be a part of and kick off the Christmas season," says special events coordinator Judy Jurries.

You can still register for the Jingle Bell 3K Race.
