A Rhinelander man who retired in 2012 from Camp McNaughton Correctional Facility is now facing criminal charges himself, after police allegedly discovered photos and videos of underage girls on his computer.
WJFW reports Paul Perdue, 69, faces one count of possessing child pornography, a felony that carries a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison. The charge was filed Nov. 19 in Oneida County Circuit Court.
Facebook photos of underage girls who visited Perdue’s neighbor’s home in the summer were also reportedly found on his computer, the WJFW report states.
During an initial appearance Tuesday, Circuit Judge Patrick O’Melia set a $5,000 cash bond for Perdue, which was one day later to allow for his release.
Perdue’s next court hearing is Dec. 9.
