Officials to determine whether Schreiber is competent for trial
DODGE CO. (WITI) — Officials in Dodge County are trying to figure out whether a man accused of making bomb threats on the Waupun area is competent enough to stand trial.
The 31-year-old Green Lake County man faces a slew of criminal charges associated with bomb threats made in the Waupun area and much more. The accused is Aaron Schreiber of Markesan.
The charges filed against Schreiber on Friday, November 15th include 15 criminal counts of bomb scares, 16 counts of bail jumping and ten felony counts of a child sex offender working with children.
According to the criminal complaint, Schreiber allegedly made bomb threats to businesses in the Waupun area starting Sunday, November 10th. Those businesses included a Culver’s Restaurant, Family Video store, Kwik Trip gas station, Marine Credit Union, a public library and even the Waupun Hospital.
The complaint says in several of the cases, calls came into the business — and the number on the called ID was listed as “private.” The caller would say, “There’s a bomb” in the building or in a store. In some cases, there was laughter in the background — and the caller would hang up.
The criminal complaint indicates in each case, investigating officers came up with Schreiber as a suspect after tracing and checking phone records.
Schreiber was arrested on Wednesday, November 13th — and according to the criminal complaint, admitted to making all of the bomb threats.
The criminal complaint also charges Schreiber with ten counts of a child sex offender working with children.
“The defendant is a convicted sex offender and has been working as a middle school and high school sports official in Mayville, Beaver Dam and Waupun,” said Dodge County District Attorney Curt Klomberg.
Schreiber has been on the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry since his conviction in March 2005. He was found guilty in a military court of having sexual relations with a 15-year-old girl while he was in the service.
There are 41 charges in all against Schreiber. If convicted, Schreiber faces 12-and-a-half years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines on the most serious charges. Bond for Schreiber has been set at $200,000. He’s also not allowed to use a cell phone and he can only use a landline telephone for emergencies or for legal use.
