Former Officer Facing Charges

A police officer in Monroe County is looking at charges after investigators say he tried to get two teenage girls to send him naked pictures.

Prosecutors filed child enticement, attempted sexual assault, and attempted possession of child pornography charges against 26-year-old Peter Schneider. He was an officer for the Ho-Chunk Police Department, and a firefighter in Sparta. He was fired as an officer as soon as he was arrested, and is on leave from the fire department. Prosecutors say they learned of the case when a 16-year-old girl and a 17-year-old girl came forward to say Schneider sent them text messages asking for explicit pictures.
