Marshfield Man Appears in Wood County Court for Possession of Child Pornography
Monday, June 16th, 2014 -- 12:02 PM-A Marshfield man appeared in Wood County Court on Monday for possession of child pornography.
Back in October of 2013, investigators executed a search warrant on the home of 37-year-old Steven Stauber Jr. Investigators found hundreds of images and videos of nude children on Stauber?s computer, external hard drives and jump drives.
Investigators said that Stauber had a program on his computer that would hide his IP address by using peer-to-peer file sharing programs like free net installer, youtorrent and more. This would conceal his computer?s location, his identity and address. He then, allegedly, openly searched for child porn using the Google search engine.
Stauber?s jury trial was pushed back during a status conference Monday. Originally, Stauber was set for a motion hearing this Friday and a jury trial on July 9th. However, the two events have been pushed back to September and October respectively as the defense attorney cited needing more time for the case. More time was scheduled for the jury trial as well. Three days in October have been scheduled for the Jury trial as opposed to the one day scheduled in July.
Stauber has five counts of possessing child pornography filed against him and he is free on a $10,000 signature bond.
