Richard Marquardt Got Down And Dirty - Jailed After Forcing 8-Year-Old Girl To Model In Dirty Diapers

Rosemount, Minnesota (The Weekly Vice) - Richard Michael Marquardt, a 35-year-old Minnesota man was jailed after he allegedly used a pre-pubescent girl for child porn, forcing her to model in dirty diapers.

According to police, an investigation was launched after an 8 year old girl told her mother that Marquardt, a friend of the family, took naked photographs of her.

Social workers then interviewed the girl who told them that Marquardt told her that it was his "job to take pictures of her private area" and that he "liked doing it," according to the arrest affidavit. The little girl went on to say Marquardt had taken 10 to 20 photographs of her since she was about 4 years old.

Investigators obtained a search warrant, entered Marquardt's residence and seized a computer, a digital camera, a cell phone and other items. When investigators searched Marquardt's computer, they found photographs and videos of the girl that dated from 2006 to 2010.

The images, according to police, showed the girl wearing dirty diapers and urinating on herself. Marquardt admitted to taking the photographs and didn't think they were inappropriate. Police also discovered photographs of Marquardt and his wife wearing diapers.

Police believe many images of the child and other children had been uploaded to the Internet.

Marquardt's residence was described in the police report as having a strong odor of urine, was dirty and strewn with trash and rat droppings. Marquart's children were removed from the residence and placed with other family.

Marquardt was booked into jail on five felony counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of possession of pornography involving minors. Bail in his case was set at $100,000.

Marquardt was convicted of child neglect in 2009, prompting authorities to remove his children from the home. He was sentenced to probation at the conclusion of that case and the children were eventually returned.
