LINCOLN (AP) — A 32-year-old Nebraska man has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for his role in making child pornography.
Prosecutors say Billy Schrader was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Lincoln. He’d pleaded guilty to one count of manufacturing child pornography. He must serve 25 years of supervised release after leaving custody and register as a sex offender.
He and his girlfriend, Julia Thiemann, were arrested in December 2013 in North Platte on several porn allegations. Authorities say a child told investigators that Schrader had sex with her and that Thiemann participated and took pictures.
Federal records say the 34-year-old Thiemann has pleaded guilty to porn production and was scheduled to be sentenced Thursday.
