SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - A Sheboygan man faces 20 counts of possessing child pornography. 41-year-old Todd Peterson made his initial appearance in Sheboygan County Court Monday.
According to the criminal complaint, local authorities were made aware back in early June of a residence on Niagara Avenue in Sheboygan - identified as Peterson’s - that had used the internet to send and receive images of child pornography. When authorities contacted Peterson last week about this, he allegedly admitted to have taken part in such activities for about a year. A review of an I-Pod found at least 20 images of boys and girls ages two to ten in sexually explicit positions.
Online court records show Peterson remains in custody on a $20,000 bond. Each count he faces could result in up to 25 years in prison if found guilty.
