Schnell sentenced to 25 days in jail for child sexual exploitation

LEWISTON, ID - A man accused of possessing child pornography is headed to jail.

Kevin Schnell faced 15 counts of sexual exploitation of a child, however after a plea agreement, eight of those charges were dismissed. A doctor read Schnell's psychosexual evaluation aloud in court Wednesday before the sentencing.

"I determined that the threat of him having his hands on a child victim is very low," said Doctor Lombard. "However there is a possibility that he may continue to try to use child pornography which I think his risk for that is really high."

"I have admitted to it and I have taken responsibility for what I've done," said Schnell.

Schnell was placed on probation for no less than two and no more than eight-years. He was also sentenced on each count to serve 180 days in jail, 150 of which will be suspended and 30 that will be imposed under the discretion of his probation officer.
