Local man charged with child porn


Allegedly also recorded stepdaughter


June 02, 2009
SOUTHBRIDGE — The large majority of teenagers can trust their parents, but Tiffany Desrosiers was shocked to discover last month that she could not trust her stepfather.

On May 20, that man, Matthew St. Francis, of 317 Pleasant St., was arrested on charges of allegedly videotaping her in her bedroom and possessing child pornography. He was arraigned the next day and released on $500 cash bail, with orders to stay away from her, have no contact (direct or indirect), an not to abuse her.

"He's been the father figure in my life since I was 10 years old," Desrosiers, 19, said Tuesday. "It's out of this world that he would betray me like that."

She said she had lived in that house since November; St. Francis bought it in September, according to town assessing records. Desrosiers spent a semester in 2008 as an Evening News intern.
