Sanborn Child Pornography 08 Nov 12

Possession of child pornography charges have been filed against a 43-year-old Sanborn man after inappropriate pictures of children were allegedly found in a storage unit recently. A box containing women’s underwear and a large amount of child pornography was discovered when Dean Paul Wersal of Sanborn reportedly fell behind on the rent on his storage unit. Wersal owed thousands of dollars on the unit, and the owner had been cleaning it out when the photos of nude children were found. Redwood County authorities were contacted, and Wersal allegedly admitted to finding some of the pictures on the internet and others from properties that he was hired to clean out. He has been charged with 3 counts of possession of pornographic work involving minors in Redwood County Court. Wersal has previous criminal sexual conduct convictions in Dakota County in 1987 and Wisconsin in 1998 as well.
