MADISON, Wis. - A Madison man was indicted Wednesday on charges of producing and distributing child pornography, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Scott C. Blader's office.
Jeremy Schenck, 24, is facing three counts of using a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of creating visual depictions and one count of distributing that depiction, according to the release. The release said an indictment against Schenck alleges he produced three images of child pornography between September 2017 and August 2018, and that he sent an image to someone in North Dakota on Nov. 6, 2018.
If Schenck is convicted, he faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years and a maximum of 30 years for each production count. He also faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of 20 years on the distribution count.
He faces charges as a result of an investigation by the Madison Police Department and the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation.
