Burnett Man Waives Prelim On Molestation Charge

5/5/17 – A Burnett man accused of molesting a middle school-age teen will head trial. Trevor Schultz waived his right to a preliminary hearing yesterday to felony charges of Sexual Assault of a Child Under 16 Years of Age. Prosecutors say the 22-year-old supplied the girl with a large amount of liquor before the incident in February of last year. Schultz told investigators that he thought the victim was 17-years-old. There is reportedly several text messages in which Schultz openly discusses the criminal behavior. If convicted, Schultz faces up to 40 years in prison. An arraignment hearing is scheduled for May 31.
