Three counts dropped against Reichling
DARLINGTON - A Darlington man who is serving 25 years in federal prison for producing child pornography and is facing additional child porn charges from the state had three of those state charges dropped Wednesday after a statute relating to the charges was determined to be unconstitutional. Timmy Reichling, 48, was charged in Lafayette County Circuit Court in 2013 with three counts of child sexual exploitation, five counts of possession of child pornography and three counts of photographing children without consent. The three counts of photographing children were dropped because a Brown County appeals court, ruling on an unrelated case, determined that the related statute, 948.14, was unconstitutionally overbroad.
