Fond du Lac Man Charged With Multiple Counts Of Child Pornography

An 18 year veteran of the Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue Department has been arrested and is being charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography.

50-year-old Edgar Ramirez-Tellez appeared in Fond du Lac County Circuit Court today, where bond was set at $500,000 cash.

In the criminal complaint, Ramirez’s phone was found having images of pre-teens engaged in sex and children as young as 1 and 2 being sexually abused.

Ramirez explained that his attraction to the sexual content depicting children began when he started reading stories with sexual narratives. The stories triggered memories Ramirez had of himself being molested as a child.

Ramirez is next scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on October 26.
