Michael D. Schneider

The Normal Police Department arrested a 34-year-old man named Michael D. Schneider on Wednesday for criminal sexual assault/victim 13-17 and possession of child pornography.

An investigation began in March when Schneider was accused of inappropriate relations with a juvenile victim, and Normal police obtained a search warrant of Schneider’s residence in Normal.

During the search warrant, many electronic storage devices were taken and during forensic examination, the Normal Police Department found evidence of child pornography.

Anyone with information involving Schneider and juvenile victims should contact the Normal Police Department at (309) 454-9535.
