DARLINGTON, WI (WTAQ) - A registered sex offender has pleaded not guilty to what authorities call one of Wisconsin's worst ever child pornography cases.
46-year-old Timmy Reichling of rural Darlington -- who registered previously as a sex offender -- is accused of having millions of pornographic images in numerous computer storage devices.
Reichling was arraigned Tuesday in Lafayette County on 11 felony charges that include child sexploitation, child porn possession, and being a sex offender who photographed minors without their permission.
A 13-year-old girl went to authorities, saying that Reichling asked her to send him nude photos and threatened to show them to her family when she wanted to stop.
The defense has asked for a new judge in the case, to replace Lafayette County Circuit Judge William Johnston.
