Beaver Dam Man Charged With Child Pornography

(Beaver Dam) A signature bond was set at $10,000 for a Beaver Dam man accused of possessing illicit content of children. Anthony Patroelj is facing nine felony counts of Child Pornography.

A CyberTip report was created in October after an account with the social media platform Kik had uploaded multiple files that were suspected to be child porn. The account was allegedly tied back to an address in Beaver Dam that was connected with Patroelj.

A search warrant was executed at the address and multiple devices were taken, including Patroelj’s cellphone. A forensic analyst reportedly found several illicit images and videos on the phone.

If convicted, the 24-year-old faces up to 225 years in prison. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for February 9th.
