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.
