LA CROSSE,Wis. (WXOW) – 43-year-old Brian L. Shaffer is charged with possession of child pornography, failure to register as a sex offender, and possession of methamphetamine.

Authorities found child porn on Shaffer’s cell phone after he allegedly uploaded pornographic images of young children to a photo sharing website. According to the criminal complaint, the La Crosse County Sheriff’s Department believes some of the children pictured to be as young as five years old.

Shaffer has an extensive criminal record beginning when he was found guilty in July 1999 on two counts of 2nd-degree sexual assault of a child.

Shaffer is expected to be in court for a preliminary hearing on October 15.
