Hayward Man Charged With Possession of Child Pornography

A Sawyer County man is charged with ten counts of possessing child pornography.  Authorities said illicit files were downloaded by 45-year-old James Hatcher of Hayward.  Law enforcement agencies traced the files back to a hotel in Hayward, where Hatcher is the only permanent resident.  Officials searched Hatcher’s room and seized a hard drive with over 180 of the files in question.  His cash bond has been set for $100-thousand dollars.  Hatcher’s next court appearance is scheduled for next week.
