Long Prison Term For Former Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Sergeant


The former Milwaukee County sheriff’s sergeant suspected of producing child pornography at a campground in Campbellsport has been sentenced in Fond du Lac County Court. Forty-two-year-old Philip Wentzel was sentenced by Judge Gary Sharpe last Friday afternoon to 25 years in prison and four years of extended supervision. The sentence will run concurrently with a 40-year federal prison sentence he’s serving on possession of child pornography charges. However Judge Sharpe also sentenced Wentzel to ten years in prison and four years extended supervision that will be added to the end of his federal prison sentence.  Last month Wentzel pled guilty to three charges of sexual assault of a child in Fond du Lac County Court. Nine other charges were read into the record and dismissed. Wentzel admitted drugging and molesting young girls, before taking sexually-explicit photos of them. The photos were then shared over an Internet file-sharing network. He took them at a campsite near Long Lake he had been reserving since 2008.
