DARLINGTON, WI (WTAQ) - Bond was set at $1 million Tuesday for a registered sex offender caught with millions of images of child pornography at his home in southwest Wisconsin.

46-year-old Timmy Reichling of rural Darlington is charged with 11 felonies in Lafayette County. They include child sexploitation, child porn possession, and being a registered sex offender who photographed minors without their permission.

He’s due back in court next Tuesday, when a judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.

A 13-year-old girl reported Reichling to police, after he allegedly asked her to send him nude photos, and then threatened to show them to her family when she wanted to stop.

Prosecutors said the girl thought she was texting someone her age, and Reichling left cameras for the girl to take nude photos of herself. Police said they eventually seized electronic storage devices from Reichling’s home with millions of lewd child images.

Meanwhile, the state Justice Department is still investigating. They say there might be other child victims, both in and out of Wisconsin.
