Mills County Attorney Eric C. Hansen, Wednesday, released additional details about the arrest of a North Carolina man arrested on sexual abuse charges. As reported earlier, 64-year old John Robert Schondelmeyer faces charges that include two felony counts of Sex Abuse in the 2nd degree, and two felony counts of Lascivious Acts with a Child. Hansen says the charges were filed following an investigation by the Mills County Sheriff’s Office.
Schondelmeyer recently resided in Bellevue, NE., but he now has a residence in Fayetteville, NC. He’s accused of committing various sex acts with two girls, ages seven and eight, over a period of time. Some of the alleged incidents occurred in Mills County, others in different jurisdictions.
If convicted of the offenses, Schondelmeyer faces 25-years in prison on each of the Sexual Abuse in the 2nd degree charges (for a total of 50-years), with a mandatory 70-percent of the time to be served before he is eligible for parole. Lascivious acts with a child is punishable by up to 10-years in prison on each count.
Schondelmeyer, who was arrested Tuesday morning at the Sarpy County, NE., Jail, was being held in the Mills County Jail on $70,000 bond. A preliminary hearing in the case is set for 10:30 a.m. on Nov. 1.
