Oneida County man sentenced for having child pornography
Star Journal Report
A Newbold man charged with possession of child pornography has been sentenced to six years in the Wisconsin Prison System. Paul M. Perdue, 71, will spend three years behind bars, followed by three years of extended supervision.
Perdue was arrested in November 2019, and pleaded guilty last November to the charge which is a class D felony. He faced a maximum 15 years in prison and 10 years extended supervision.
According to the criminal complaint, two Oneida County Sheriff’s detectives, a state Department of Criminal Investigation agent and an analyst questioned Perdue outside his home before Perdue eventually allowed them access to his computer, a tablet, a camera and a cell phone.
Perdue reportedly told investigators he was “addicted” to looking at pornographic images of girls aged 14-15 years old and also admitted he knew it was wrong. Several images were reportedly downloaded from his computer.
