Hill was charged in December of 2015 after a woman found naked photographs of her children on Hill’s phone. She gave the phone to a Mower County deputy.

Hill called the sheriff’s office later that day to report that his phone was stolen.

A Mower County detective searched the phone via a search warrant and found eight explicit pictures involving minors.
