Investigators say the children told them Richter had oral and anal sex with them on multiple occasions, used sex toys on them and filmed them taking baths.
When detectives served Richter with a search warrant last week he told them, “I'll save you time, the things you are looking for are under the coffee table,” according to the complaint.
Officers seized an unspecified number of DVDs, a tripod, cameras and a hard drive.
Prosecutors said some DVDs contained videos of Richter having sex with the two children and photos of the siblings posing naked and simulating sex acts with each other. They said one DVD, titled “Monster Unleashed,” showed Richter having sex in his home with four different children — three girls and a boy. The youngest child, one of the girls, just turned 5 this month.
In some of the footage, the children are crying and can be heard telling Richter to stop or seen trying to fight him off, according to the complaint.
Pavilonis said authorities are trying to determine whether any of the images have been shared with other people as child pornography.
“A number of investigators and officers have children,” the police sergeant said, “and we certainly investigate as if our own children were involved.”
