Man with child porn charges facing bail jumping charge

Garrett A. German, facing seven counts of possessing child pornography and one count of possessing with intent to deliver marijuana in Chippewa County, told authorities that he lived on Eddy Lane in Eau Claire.

But a criminal complaint said when authorities checked, the owner of the Eddy Lane property said German never lived or stayed in the residence.

So German, 25, of 1727 Bellinger St. No. 2, Eau Claire now faces an additional charge of felony bail jumping from July 8.

A motions hearing for German is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 24 before Judge Roderick Cameron. According to the criminal complaint on the child pornography charges from April 12 in Chippewa Falls:

The Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Department received three tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. One was that an image posted to the Facebook appeared to depict child pornography and the screen name used was German’s.

A search warrant was used on German’s then-residence. An image on his cell phone appeared to be a girl between ages 5-7 who was placed in a sexual situation.

Officers also found 26 bags with marijuana with a combined weight of 287.3 grams, along with a bag of psilocybin mushrooms.
