WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Bond was set at $50,000 for a 24-year-old Wausau woman accused of making and distributing child pornography.

Natalie Ticho was arrested Tuesday after a task force officer in Winnebago County developed information that Ticho had shared pornographic images on the messaging app Kik. Ticho was arrested at her Wausau home Tuesday and appeared in court Thursday for a probable cause hearing.

Marathon County Assistant District Attorney Hannah Boeck said Ticho shared three pornographic images.

“The defendant was a member of Kik app messaging groups looking for child sexual abuse material,” Boeck said.

Boeck said detectives were notified of the situation by the FBI.

“We request additional time to ensure all charges are in a single complaint after a thorough investigation,” Boeck said in court Thursday.

Judge Michael Moran set bond at $50,000 with the first $10,000 in cash.

She was ordered to have no contact with anyone under the age of 18 and cannot use a device with internet capability.

She’s expected to be formally charged Dec. 4.
