So, she wasn’t 17, but 16, when he took her across statelines to have sex with her… In any case, it looks like Jack Schaap will have plenty of time to perfect polishing his shaft over the next decade:
… Schaap attorney Paul Stracci read [a] statement after Schaap’s initial appearance at the U.S. District Court in Hammond, where he agreed not to contest being held in prison pending his change of plea hearing and sentencing. …
“Unfortunately, yes,” [Schaap] said when [U.S. Judge Paul Cherry] asked him if he understood the punishment he is facing. …
According to the agreement, federal attorneys will recommend Schaap spend 10 years in prison for the charge, the mandatory minimum. He also must register as a sex offender and pay an undetermined amount of restitution to the victim. He also has to forfeit his iPod, iPhone, an Olympus digital recorder, two flash drives, a Motorola Razr cell phone and a Canon digital camera.
In exchange, prosecutors in Illinois, Wisconsin and Lake County will not press any more charges. …
A change of plea hearing has been set for Sept. 26.
