A 61-year-old Mequon man was charged July 10 in Waukesha County Circuit Court with seven counts of possessing child pornography, allegedly keeping the illegal content on a computer at his Menomonee Falls business.

According to the criminal complaint, An Ohio child sex abuse investigator told state investigators Aug. 6 that Robbie D. Kressin, owner of Midwest Lighting Center, was planning a trip to Ohio to have sex with an individual he believed was a child. The Ohio investigator said he had been communicating with Kressin since April and he had been sent suspected child pornography images by the business owner.

Department of Justice officials said they received an anonymous tip Oct. 4 that Kressin kept images of child pornography on a computer at the business, located at N93 W14594 Whittaker Way, Menomonee Falls.

Another anonymous tip from June 11 said that Kressin was attempting to set up a photography session for underage pictures through Craigslist, the complaint states.

A search warrant was executed July 9 on Kressin's business and his computer was confiscated. Several images depicted nude children participating in sex acts, according to the complaint.

Kressin told investigators that the computer was his and that he would find child pornography on websites or through other people, according to the complaint.

Kressin could face 175 years in prison and $700,000 in fines if convicted.

He is expected to appear in court on Aug. 2.
