September 06, 2012

A 27-year-old East Troy man faces felony charges of possession of child pornography after he allegedly downloaded the illegal images on his cell phone.

If convicted, Jason FD Newcomb, 2867 Edwards St., No. 5, faces up to 25 years imprisonment and $100,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

On Aug. 1, Newcomb’s live-in girlfriend turned over a cell phone to police, which she said belonged to Newcomb. The woman said Newcomb used the phone to access the Internet and look at child pornography.

The woman said she confronted Newcomb, and he was extremely embarrassed. Police searched the phone and recovered images believed to be child pornography.
