DOA still mum on status of supervisor facing child sex charges

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Department of Administration is staying quiet on the status of a supervisor who was arrested on charges of child enticement and trafficking of a child two weeks ago.

Police arrested 49 year-old Timothy Marking on March 12th, after investigators say he showed up to meet a 14-year-old girl for sex in a Menards parking lot near East Towne Mall.

Marking was one of 17 people arrested as part of an internet sting by the Wisconsin Department of Justice's Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce.

Investigators say Marking had answered a fake ad on Craigslist advertising young girls for sex.  A police officer pretending online to be a liaison for the girls arranged for Marking to meet what he thought would be a young teen.

When Marking arrived at Menards, state agents confronted and arrested him.

Marking is a Building and Grounds Supervisor with DOA, who earns more than $81,000 annually.

27 News has asked for Marking's payroll records since March 13th, but a DOA spokesperson says no records are available for that period yet.  DOA also has not commented on whether Marking is still employed with the agency.
