Horicon man to serve year in jail for assaulting teen

November 7, 2018

JUNEAU — A 24-year-old Horicon man must serve a year in jail after pleading no contest to sexually assaulting a 15-year-old Beaver Dam girl.

Trevor M. Schultz pleaded no contest Monday to a felony charge of sexual assault of a child under the age of 16 and two misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree sexual assault. He was placed on a deferred prosecutor’s agreement for the felony charge. His sentence was withheld, and he was placed on probation for two years for the two misdemeanor charges. As conditions of his probation, he must serve one year in jail and pay court costs.

According to the criminal complaint, Schultz was in custody at the Dodge County Jail on June 3, 2016, when his probation agent gave police permission to check Schultz’s phone — which had been brought to the probation officer by Schultz’s mother — to confirm there was contact between Schultz and some minor females ages 14 and 15. Information on his phone and through a social media post indicated Schultz was having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl.

Deputies received a search warrant for Schultz’s phone and found messages where Schultz mentioned having a sexual relationship with a girl and asking her not to tell anyone.

Police spoke to the girl, who told police she drank more than 10 shots of amaretto with Schultz in the back of a vehicle. She also said she had sex with Schultz. The girl said she liked Schultz, but heard he had taken another girl’s virginity. She said she didn’t want to be around someone who didn’t understand the importance of virginity.

A friend who was with the two that night also spoke with police. According to the criminal complaint the friend said that Schultz plied the girl with alcohol. The friend left the vehicle and sat on the trunk to avoid the situation.

Officers met with Schultz at the jail on June 30, 2016. Schultz stopped the interview after learning that his mother turned his phone over to his probation officer.
