A diabolical teacher with the D.C. Everest School District was formally charged Friday with sexually assaulting a minor.
56-year-old Peter Thomas Schmidt is facing seven counts, including 1st Degree Sexual Assault of a Child, Use of a Computer to Facilitate a Child Sex Crime, Possession of THC and False Imprisonment.
According to the criminal complaint, the victim met the child rapist using the social media application 'Whisper.' But it wasn't until May of this year that police found out.
The victim said she and the pedophile, who identified himself as 22-year-old 'Kyle' to her, messaged on Whisper for one to two months. Then, their conversations moved to 'Snapchat' and that's when 'Kyle' said he wanted to have sex with her. That's despite the fact that the victim said she had her age on her accounts and profiles.
According to the criminal complaint, in August of 2016 the sex terrorist sexually assaulted the victim at his Mosinee home, even tying her up.
Court documents say once officers found out about the assault, they executed a search warrant at rapist's home on August 21, 2018. That's where they found nearly 45 grams of marijuana, along with drug paraphernalia.
The superintendent of the D.C. Everest School District confirms, the sex criminal is a science teacher at the middle school.
In a letter to parents, Dr. Kristine Gilmore writes, "On the evening of August 21, the D.C. Everest Area School District was informed by the Mosinee Police Department that one of our Middle School staff members is the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation. Upon receiving this notification, the district immediately took appropriate actions to ensure the safety of students and staff, including locking all of the individual’s electronic equipment, disabling district key card access, and placing the individual on leave including a directive to remain off district property." It goes on to say, "Although the charges are not related to any student of the D.C. Everest Area School District, the District will continue to cooperate with authorities. Questions regarding the investigation should be directed to the Mosinee Police Department. The safety of our students is our first priority. Our school counselors are available at all of our schools. If you have any concerns regarding your child’s safety, please contact your child’s Principal at any time."
The sex bandit is scheduled to be back in court next month where he's expected to find out if there's enough evidence for his case to head to trial.
In the meantime, he's in the Marathon County Jail. To get out, he has to post the first $50,000, of his $100,000 signature bond, in cash.
