United States Attorney Richard G. Frohling for the Eastern District of Wisconsin announced that on February 3, 2022, Sean A. Jochims (age: 51) formerly of Pewaukee, Wisconsin, was sentenced by U. S. District Judge J.P. Stadtmueller to four years in federal prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release. As part of his sentence, Jochims must also comply with sex offender registry requirements, which mandate that he must notify registry officials where he is living, working, or attending school.
At sentencing, Judge Stadtmueller emphasized the serious nature of the offense and its impact on the children who are sexually abused in order to fuel the child pornography industry. He noted, “The victims are the most precious resources we have in our society . . .The FBI has the technology and the resources to investigate these cases because we can’t tolerate this behavior in our society.”
This case was investigated by the Milwaukee Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Megan J. Paulson and Abbey M. Marzick.
This case was also brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006, by the U.S. Department of Justice. Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
