25 year jail sentence in child-porn case

DARLINGTON, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A southwest Wisconsin man has been sentenced to 25 years in a federal prison for what authorities have called one of the state's largest child pornography cases ever. Investigators said they found several million child porn images last summer in numerous storage devices owned by 47-year-old Timmy Reichling of Darlington. He pleaded guilty in June to a federal charge of producing child porn. If he's still alive after he leaves prison, Reichling will have to spend his remaining years under federal supervision.

He also faces eleven Lafayette County charges that include child porn possession and child sexploitation. The status of that case will be reviewed on September 24th. Prosecutors said Reichling posed as a teenage boy on Facebook, to get girls to send nude photos to him -- and he hid cameras in the homes of acquaintances. A 13-year-old girl went to authorities, saying that Reichling asked her to send him nude photos -- and when she wanted him 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. The judge in his federal case said it was a factor in his new term.
