A 38-year-old Marshfield man is facing 125 years in prison after pleading guilty to child pornography charges.

Randy J. Cash pleaded guilty Monday in Wood County Circuit Court to five counts of possession of child pornography. Circuit Court Judge Edward Zappen Jr. said Cash faces a maximum of 25 years in prison on each of the counts. Five additional counts of possession of child pornography were dismissed.

Zappen ordered a presentence investigation and scheduled Cash’s sentencing for Feb. 29.

Wood County District Attorney Todd Wolf said as part of a plea agreement, he would follow the recommendation the presentence investigation. He also agreed not to ask for consecutive sentences in the case. The least amount of prison time Cash faces is three years.

Cash was collecting garbage in Wausau when he dropped his personal digital assistant, Wood County Investigator-Sgt. Dean Berres said. A woman found it, saw the images and turned it over to the Wausau Police Department.

The Wausau Police Department contacted the Wisconsin Division of Corrections after finding Cash’s name in the wallet containing the PDA and memory cards. Cash was on probation for domestic abuse in Marathon County.

In Marshfield, Cash’s home computer was seized. When Berres examined it, as well as the palm device and memory cards, he found almost 500 images of child pornography, most showing children thought to be 1 to 10 years old, he said.

Many of the images were downloaded from the Internet, according to the criminal complaint. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children identified 26 series of photos and 80 victims, Berres said.
