A man wanted for sex crimes made an appearance in Portage County Circuit Court Monday -- after three years as a fugitive.
Jeremiah Button was arrested at his hiding place last Friday. Authorities say he was living in the side of a hill in Marathon County where he had the ability to make electricity and to have portable water and a septic system. Button was tracked down when authorities got a tip about someone seen along the Ice Age Trail in Ringle. Button is charged with child porn possession and sexual assault of a child under 12. He returns to court next month.
