LADYSMITH, Wisc. (WLAX/WEUX) – Federal charges of producing child pornography are now filed against a former teacher at Ladysmith High School. 34-year-old Mckenzie Johnson was arrested Tuesday and is currently in the Rusk county jail.
An initial appearance in federal court in Madison has not been scheduled.
The case alleged in the complaint does not involve a victim from Wisconsin, but a statement out today from the U.S. Department of Justice lists the police department in Fontana, California as being part of the investigation.
If convicted, Johnson faces between 15 and 30 years in federal prison.
