Madison man faces 20 counts of possession of child porn

A Madison man was arrested Thursday on charges of possessing child pornography, officials said.

The Madison Police Department said 37-year-old Patrick J. Manning is facing 20 counts of possessing child porn.

According to a report, police received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, requiring an aggressive response due to Manning’s potential access to children where he works at a Madison hospital. Police said that throughout the development of investigative leads and evidence, there has not been any information obtained that led anyone to believe that any person connected to the hospital was in any way affected.

A SWAT team searched Manning’s home in the 1300 block of Drake Street on Jan. 16.

Early on in the investigation, the hospital’s administration was notified of the exigent circumstances and cooperated fully with the Special Victim’s Unit.
