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.
