Repeat Sex Offender Sentenced to 10 Years for Possessing Child Pornography

MADISON, WIS. – Timothy M. O’Shea, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Kelly M. Schultz, 45, of Antigo, Wisconsin, was sentenced today by Chief U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson to 10 years in prison for possessing child pornography.  The prison term will be followed by 20 years of supervised release.  Schultz pleaded guilty to this charge on August 23, 2022.

In March 2017, law enforcement determined that Schultz was posing as a teenage girl on-line in an attempt to get a teenage boy to send him sexually explicit images.  As part of that investigation, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at the defendant’s home and seized approximately 150 CDs and DVDs.  During the analysis of these items, law enforcement found numerous images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. 

Judge Peterson found that the 10-year sentence was warranted based on Schultz’s pattern of sex offenses against children.  He previously was convicted of the sexual assault of a child. 

The charge against Schultz was the result of an investigation conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation; the Port Edwards, Markesan, Everest Metro, and Antigo Police Departments; and the Green Lake County Sheriff’s Office.  The Langlade County District Attorney’s office also assisted.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Altman prosecuted this case.
