Additional charge against Poenitske

Gary D. Poenitske

During the investigation into the charge of possession of child pornography against Gary D. Poenitske, additional material was found.

Poenitske was initially arrested on Dec. 8 and appeared before Judge Richard Brown on Dec. 10. At that time his bond was set at $30,000, and Poenitske posted bond later that day.

However, he was arrested again on Dec. 17 on an additional charge of creating child pornography. This time, Poenitske’s bond was set at $250,000 and as of early this week he was still incarcerated at the Randolph County Jail.
