DARLINGTON — Timmy J. Reichling, the man officials are saying is at the center of one the worst cases of child pornography in the state’s history, has been transferred to Madison in order for the proceedings involving his four federal charges to continue.
Reichling appeared in the Lafayette County courtroom Oct. 30 for a scheduling conference when his transfer was announced.
Green County Circuit Judge James Beer presided over the court, which made plans to continue the process of Reichling’s state charges in Lafayette County Circuit Court in about six to seven months.
A scheduling conference was scheduled for Reichling in Lafayette County for May 28 at 9 a.m.
Reichling was indicted by a federal grand jury Oct. 11 on two counts of producing child pornography, one count of possessing child pornography and one count of receipt of child pornography.
Those charges are in addition to the 11 charges in Lafayette County, including three counts of child exploitation, three counts of being a registered sex offender who intentionally photographed a minor without consent and five counts of being in possession of child pornography.
