Ex-GOP House aide faces prospect of more child porn charges

Rory Koch — who was running for Ramsey County commissioner while under investigation for possessing child pornography — went to court on Friday trying to get his case dismissed. Instead, he learned that the state plans to file more charges against him.

Koch, 39, served as a committee administrator for the Minnesota House Republican Caucus when charged last March with 12 counts of possessing child pornography. He’s since lost his job.

Not only is he charged this week in Ramsey County District Court with those 12 counts of possession of child pornography, but prosecutor Karen Kugler said she’s now deciding how many more counts to file against him next week.

…She could file up to 56 more counts because there were a total of 68 images allegedly found on his computer, though prosecutors typically don’t file a count for every single image found.

The charges filed on March 1 came┬álong after investigators seized two Dell computer towers from Koch’s St. Paul apartment in September 2010 and began their forensic probes of his computer use.

A criminal complaint alleges that he possessed pornography of naked, prepubscent boys and girls showing their genitalia and sometimes in sexually suggestive positions.
