Registered Sex Offender Indicted for Child Pornography Production in Wisconsin

United States Attorney Matthew D. Krueger of the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on July 23, 2019 a federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment against Timothy L. Tyler (age: 40) of Milwaukee, WI.

Tyler faces charges alleging he distributed and possessed child pornography contrary to Title 18, United States Code, Sections 2252A(a)(2)(A) and (a)(5)(B). If convicted of all of the charges, Tyler will serve a mandatory 15 years in federal prison.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the High Technology Unit of The Milwaukee Police Department.  It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Megan J. Paulson.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
