A New Richmond man who served as a police officer in Minnesota pleaded innocent to felony charges in connection with a child pornography investigation.
Anthony T. Miller, 40, pleaded not guilty to one count of possession of child pornography and one count of sexual exploitation of a child before Judge Edward Vlack Monday. A status conference was scheduled for March 9.
Miller was arrested following U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigated a child pornography distributor in Omaha, Neb., in January 2008.
The investigation produced some 448 pictures of naked, pre-pubescent females exchanged between the Omaha location and Miller’s residence, the criminal complaint said.
On Dec. 15, agents obtained a search warrant on Miller’s home. He allegedly admitted to investigators he had engaged in downloading and trading images of child pornography for about two years, according to the complaint.
