MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The former principal of Chanhassen High School is facing new charges of child pornography.

Timothy Dorway appeared in Carver County court Thursday, a day after the state filed 10 additional counts against him for possessing child pornography. He was originally charged with seven counts in December.

The 44-year-old told investigators early on he was drawn to video of girls between the ages of 11 and 13. But in the amended complaint, investigators say evidence showed the videos involved even younger children of both genders. There were 127 videos and images including girls as young as four, and boys as young as one.

Dorway told police that he would have links to the videos sent to him that he would upload to a Dropbox account, and that he would normally delete the videos after a period of time.

Court documents say Dorway’s dropbox was accessed at least once using an internet provider address associated with a school district device.

Dorway had been the principal at Chanhassen High School since 2010. He resigned in January in light of the charges.
