EAU CLAIRE COUNTY, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Ten charges of possessing child pornography were filed today against an Eau Claire man.
34-year-old Derek M. Demars had an initial appearance today.
Attorneys for the state had asked for a 10-thousand-dollar cash bond, but a judge ordered the cash amount set at 2 thousand.
He’s currently being held in the Eau Claire County Jail, and his next hearing is set for Tuesday.
In a complaint filed today, detectives started investigating the case in late-February. Through multiple email addresses, and records tied to a vehicle crash this June, authorities were led to Demars.
A search warrant was served on Wednesday and Demars was taken into custody.
