MILWAUKEE (AP) — A former New Holstein school superintendent is due to be sentenced after he was convicted last month following an online sex sting.
Christopher Joseph Nelson faces a maximum prison sentence of 25 years when he’s sentenced Thursday afternoon. The 59-year-old pleaded guilty to using a computer to facilitate a sex crime.
Nelson was arrested in January in an online sting. Prosecutors say he arranged for a rendezvous with someone he thought was a 15-year-old boy, but was actually an undercover investigator.
Defense attorney Richard Hart said Nelson got involved in something he never should have gotten involved in. He told The Associated Press after the plea hearing that Nelson is working to fix things with his family and is seeking psychological treatment.
