Wichita has been named the fourth holiest city in the country by Men’s Health. But how could such a religious land spawn Donald Schmidt, a 74-year-old collector of child pornography?
Schmidt was found to have boxes upon boxes of CDs and DVDs containing kiddieporn, according to the Wichita Eagle. All told, the geezer had more than three million images of young whippersnappers in compromising positions. But the charitable Christian in him prevailed, in a way.
Schmidt shared his substantial stash with others in need — of getting off to children — through a file sharing service. He also shared his thoughts about molesting children in an online chat room.
Schmidt was charged today in federal court and will be sentenced at the end of January, when he will face five to thirty years in prison.
By the way, Kansas City placed 19th in the holiest cities competition. Every time a gun shot rings out, an angel must get his wings!
