Sex offender now facing federal charges in child porn case

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A sex offender from Darlington is now facing federal charges in addition to state charges for one of Wisconsin's largest child porn cases ever.

A federal grand jury in Madison has indicted 46-year-old Timmy Reichling on four federal child pornography counts. That's after he pleaded not guilty to 11 state charges in Lafayette County of child porn possession, child sexploitation, and taking children's photos as a registered sex offender without the youngsters' permission.

Authorities recently found Reichling with several million child porn images in numerous computer storage devices.

A 13-year-old girl went to authorities, saying that Reichling asked her to send him nude photos -- and when she wanted to stop, he allegedly threatened to show the images to her family.

Reichling spent about 15 years in prison for a sexual assault conviction in 1993.

He recently asked for a new judge in his state case, and Green County Circuit Judge James Beer was assigned.

All parties in the state matter will meet October 13th to schedule further court proceedings.
