Child pornography case: Mount Pleasant man accused

Jose Perez-Cabrera

A 27-year-old Mount Pleasant man faces six counts of possession of child pornography. The accused is Jose Perez-Cabrera.

According to the criminal complaint, members of the Racine Police Department executed a search warrant at a residence on S. Newman Road in Mount Pleasant on Monday, Jan. 31. 

Investigators received a cyber tip from the Wisconsin Department of Justice. The tip indicated "suspected child pornography videos were being uploaded and downloaded" at the Newman Road address. A review of the videos shows they "are clearly child pornography and exploitation, and similarly depict child sexual assault."

Perez-Cabrera, the resident of that home in question, was taken into custody. The criminal complaint says "he admitted that he had been uploading and downloading child pornography for some time using the Kik Application."
