U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Wisconsin
United States Attorney Mathew D. Krueger of the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on February 3, 2020, Todd J. Naze (age: 54) of Green Bay, Wisconsin, was charged by criminal complaint with six counts of production of child pornography in violation of 18 U.S.C. Section 2251. If convicted of any charge, Naze faces a mandatory minimum term of 15 years and up to 30 years in prison, $250,000 fine, and five years to life of supervised release.
The affidavit in support of the criminal complaint alleges that on December 31, 2019, Adult Female 1 met with Brown County Sheriff Deputies and advised them that Todd Naze possessed a hard drive containing image and movie files of females using the toilet in a staff bathroom at Southwest High School in Green Bay, Wisconsin. In the process of doing so, the females exposed their pubic and genital area, which was recorded on the videos. Adult Female 1 copied the hard drive and provided a copy to law enforcement. Upon examining the videos, law enforcement advised that they appeared to be created from a camera hidden in the bathroom and contain video images of multiple females. Law enforcement searched Naze’s residence and school office recovering numerous computers and storage devices that continue to be examined. Law enforcement have identified thousands of movie and image files containing images of more than 30 females. Seventeen of them are either current or former students. In general, the videos of the minor females depict the minor from the waist down and only in camera view when directly in front of the toilet.
On February 5, 2020, Naze appeared before the Honorable James Sickel, Magistrate Court Judge, and was ordered to be held in jail. A preliminary hearing in the matter is scheduled for February 20, 2020 3:00 PM in Courtroom 201, 125 S. Jefferson St., Green Bay, WI 54301 before Magistrate Judge James R Sickel.
This case was investigated by the Green Bay Police Department, Brown County Sheriff’s Department and Brown County District Attorney’s office. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney William Roach.
A criminal complaint 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 guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
