The Scottsburg man arrested recently on child pornography charges had his initial hearing in Scott Circuit Court on Friday, February 23.

Tyler S. Tscheulin, 23, Scottsburg, entered a preliminary plea of not guilty to two counts of child exploitation and two counts of possession of child pornography. His North Vernon attorney was present at the hearing.

According to the probable cause affidavit filed in the case, Tscheulin’s arrest came about from information forwarded by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), a non-profit organization which serves as a national clearinghouse and resource center for issues related to missing or exploited children.

Staff of the NCMEC reportedly advised Det. Mary Sanchez of the Indiana State Police, Sellersburg post, that a subject had uploaded at least 25 photos to a Dropbox using the screen name “Shoe Shoe.” Dropbox cooperated with the investigation, providing records of the user’s information which allegedly identified the Dropbox customer as Tscheulin.

When officers took this information to the Scott County Prosecutor’s Office on February 19, arrangements were made through Scott Circuit Court to have a search warrant issued for Tscheulin’s home on South Third Street, Scottsburg.

Once officers seized computer-related items allegedly containing child pornography images on February 20, ISP Trooper Mark LaMaster went to Scottsburg Elementary School and drove Tscheulin back to his home. The suspect was employed at the school as a teacher’s aide and also served as a co-coach for its archery team.

As he talked to Det. Sanchez, Tscheulin allegedly admitted having viewed child pornography obtained from two social networking sites. Tscheulin also reportedly estimated from five to ten percent of his collection contained child pornography.

Tscheulin was taken into custody and taken to the Scott County Security Center, where he remains awaiting his May 7 jury trial.

According to a statement made by Scott District 2 Superintendent Marc Slaton to Louisville media, actions taken should assure parents that the children’s school environment is safe and that any threats are handled promptly. None of the children with which the accused has had contact are depicted in the evidence seized, Slaton added.

All of the charges filed against Tscheulin are felonies.

The man’s bail is set at $65,000 by corporate surety bond or $6,500 in cash.

If he files bail, Tscheulin will be placed on restrictive pre-trial probation. Conditions of his release also include staying away from Scott School District 2 property without knowledge of his presence or an invitation by school administration. He will also be unable to access the Internet without the approval of the Scott County Probation Department.
