This past Wednesday, November 30th, in the Washington County Circuit Court, Isaac William Schmitt, 27, formerly of Pekin, IN, at the time of his arrest, was sentenced to serve four years at the Indiana Department of Correction with one year suspended.

In July of this year, Schmitt plead guilty to one count of Child Exploitation, Felony, after his arrest.

In July 2014, officers from the Indiana State Police Internet Crimes Against Children, (ICAC), Task Force and troopers from the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg, arrested Schmitt, then 25 years of age, from East State Road #60, Pekin.

The arrest was the result of a tip relayed to officers from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, (NCMEC), of a subject allegedly uploading child pornography to an internet account. As officers began their investigation today, it led to Borden, IN, where the suspect was located at his place of employment.

After speaking with Schmitt at his place of employment, officers along with Schmitt went to his residence located at 6045 East State Road #60 in Pekin, (Washington County).

After completing an initial search of his personal computer he was taken into custody.

Schmitt was transported to the Washington County Jail where he was incarcerated on the charges of Possession of Child Pornography, Felony and Child Exploitation, Felony.
