Warren County Man Sentenced for Transporting a Minor Across State Lines

St. Louis, MO – Christopher Schroeder was sentenced to 15 years in prison on charges of transporting a minor across state lines to engage in criminal sexual activity.

According to court documents, in late October 2015 or early November 2015, Schroeder met a 15-year-old female through KIK, an internet chat forum, who was living in Brooklyn, Ohio. Schroeder drove to Brooklyn and picked her up at an agreed upon location, and drove them to his residence in Marthasville, MO.  Sometime after arriving at his home, he engaged in sexual intercourse with her, and he recorded two of the sex acts without her knowledge.

Schroeder, Marthasville, MO, pled guilty in July to one felony count of transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity. He appeared today for sentencing before United States District Judge Henry Autrey.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Brooklyn Police Department, St. Charles County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Warren County Sheriff’s Department.  Assistant United States Attorney Colleen Lang handled the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
