MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Former New Holstein school superintendent Christopher Nelson is sentenced to five years in prison Thursday afternoon for trying to arrange sex with a teenager.
The 59-year-old Nelson pleaded guilty a month ago to a Milwaukee County charge of using a computer to facilitate a sex crime.
He admitted that he arranged sex while chatting with whom he thought was a 15-year-old boy on the Internet. The boy turned out to be a Milwaukee police detective.
Nelson was arrested in January while in the city for a convention of school boards.
Meanwhile, Nelson still has 5 child pornography charges pending in his home county of Calumet. Nelson pleaded not guilty in that case last month, and he’s due back in court July 18th.
Authorities said he had pornographic images of children on some of his computer flash drives – and he reportedly had one of them in his possession when he was arrested in Milwaukee.
His attorney recently said Nelson is seeking psychological treatment, and he’s trying to patch things up with his family.
