Forty-five-year-old James Allen Hatcher was arrested June 5 after law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at the motel room where Hatcher had been living.

According to a criminal complaint, investigators downloaded child pornography from Hatcher's computer using a peer-to-peer file-sharing network.  The complaint says Hatcher admitted to downloading, viewing, and saving child pornography.

The arrest was the result of an investigation by the Wisconsin Department of Justice Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office.
