According to the complaint, Sturgeon Bay Police Department officers executed a search warrant at a bookstore named “Untitled and Rare Used Books” that is owned and operated by Mr. Link, as well as an apartment, occupied by Mr. Murphy, located above the bookstore. Law enforcement officers seized numerous computers and media storage devices, searched them, and identified image and movie files containing child pornography.
Both of the defendants appeared in federal court this afternoon before the Honorable James R. Sickel. They were ordered detained in federal U.S. Marshal custody until their detention hearings currently scheduled before Magistrate Judge Sickel on November 3, 2014. The case is being investigated by the Sturgeon Bay Police Department and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney William Roach.
The public is cautioned that a criminal complaint is merely a formal method of charging an individual and does not constitute an inference of guilt. An individual is presumed innocent until such time, if ever, that the government establishes his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt
