Case Number: 1:21-cr-00183-WCG-NJ
Judge: William C. Griesbach
Court: United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin (Milwaukee County)
Plaintiff's Attorney: United States Attorney’s Office
Description: Milwaukee, WI: Criminal defense lawyer represented Defendant charged with possession of child pornography.
On November 13, 2020, Alexander P. Bebris, a former career law enforcement officer, was sentenced to 60 months of imprisonment following a conviction in the Eastern District of Wisconsin for distribution of child pornography. He was allowed to remain free pending the outcome of his appeal. On July 15, 2021, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals denied Bebris’ appeal and he was ordered to report to federal prison on August 24, 2021.
According to court records, on August 20, 2021, Calumet and Brown County law enforcement executed a search warrant at Bebris’ residence, found Bebris in possession of child pornography, and arrested him. The indictment alleges that Bebris possessed child pornography as a repeat offender and that he did so in violation of the terms of his release.
If convicted, Bebris faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years and up to 30 years of imprisonment. Further, any sentence imposed must be served consecutive to the 60-month sentence already imposed by the court.
18:2252A(a)(5)(B) and 3147 POSSESSION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY; COMMITTING OFFENSE WHILE ON SUPERVISION.
Outcome: An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
