MILWAUKEE (AP) — A former candidate for Outagamie County sheriff has been indicted by a federal grand jury for possessing child pornography while he was appealing a previous conviction for distribution of child porn.

Alexander Bebris, of Denmark, was sentenced to five years in prison in November and was allowed to remain free pending his appeal. Calumet and Brown County law enforcement found the images during a search of his residence on Aug. 20.

If convicted, the 52-year-old Bebris faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum of 30 years.

Any sentence imposed would be added to his current term. Bebris, a former career law enforcement officer, lost the 2018 Republican primary election for Outagamie County sheriff to eventual winner Clint Kriewaldt.

NEENAH, Wis. (WFRV) – A Denmark man has been sentenced to federal prison for distributing child pornography.

According to the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, 51-year-old Alexander Bebris, a former police chief and sheriff candidate, has been sentenced to 60 months.

According to court records, Facebook notified the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that a user had sent images of child pornography through their Facebook messenger system.

The Wisconsin Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce launched an investigation and determined that the images were sent from an IP address in use at Bebris’s residence in Neenah.

Investigators say they were granted a search warrant and examined Bebris’s house, and found the pornography involving children ranging in age from approximately one to 15.

Authorities say Bebris spent his career in law enforcement and in 2018, ran unsuccessfully for the position of Outagamie County Sheriff.

According to records, Bebris will spend six years on supervised release following his release from prison and will be required to register as a sexual offender.
