A longtime employee in the Middleton-Cross Plains School District has retired, following charges of possessing child pornography. 62 year old Todd Anderson was arrested during an unrelated sexual assault investigation.

Anderson was a librarian in the district for over 20 years. He started this school year at Sunset Ridge , but then retired in the past month, after being arrested and charged on a half dozen counts. Those charges were filed against Anderson last week in Dane County Circuit Court.

According to a criminal complaint, detectives found the material on Anderson's personal computer. It included images of girls from one year old to 13 years old in provocative poses, sometimes naked and sometimes engaged in sexual intercourse.

Anderson confessed to viewing child porn several times a week for up to seven years, saying he has a sexual attraction to pre-teen females.

Parents in the school district have received letters from officials, detailing the situation.
