Mattison arrested on child porn charges

Lawrence Wayne Mattison

A town of Troy man has been arrested and charged with 29 felony counts of possession of child pornography.

Lawrence Wayne Mattison, 64, River Falls, who was previously convicted on a similar charge, was ordered to post $25,000 cash bail last Friday (Feb. 19) in St. Croix County Circuit Court.

Judge Eric J. Lundell set a preliminary hearing for Thursday (Feb. 25).

The criminal complaint said during the course of Mattison's extended supervision on a probation revocation sentence for a child pornography conviction in Nov. 2006, an agent received information that he had child pornography in his possession.

On Nov. 23, probation agents conducted a search of his residence in the Fox Trailer Court and allegedly found floppy discs that contained images of child pornography.

Court records said Mattison was charged with five felony counts of possession of child pornography stemming from a Feb. 15, 2005 investigation of a child sex assault complaint in New Richmond. He was convicted of one child porn count July 6, 2006 and sentenced to three years on probation and nine months in jail.

His probation was revoked on Aug. 1, 2008 and he was ordered to 18 months in prison, with credit for 456 days, and extended supervision for two years.
