MADISON — On Wednesday, September 14, 2011, special agents from the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI), along with the Brown County Sheriff's Department and Pulaski Police Department, executed a search warrant on a camper, located at 178 North Wisconsin Street, in the Village of Pulaski, Brown County, and arrested Richard P. Gleason.

 

According to the criminal complaint, a search of Gleason's camper turned up computer hard drives, cellular telephones, DVDs, documents and miscellaneous items, and a forensic preview of a hard drive revealed sexually explicit images and videos of children.

 

In an interview with a DCI special agent, Gleason admitted to downloading child pornography, according to the complaint.

 

Richard P. Gleason was arrested and charged with five counts of possession of child pornography, a class D felony, and taken to the Brown County Jail.

 

Questions about this case should be directed to the Brown County District Attorney's office.

 

A defendant enjoys the presumption of innocence. The prosecution must prove its allegations at trial beyond a reasonable doubt.
