Markesan Sex Offenders Pleads To Bomb Scare Charges

The 33-year-old Markesan sex offender that officiated youth sports and then called in a series of bomb threats after his ref license was suspended has entered into a plea agreement with Dodge County prosecutors.  Aaron Schreiber withdrew a previous plea of “not guilty by reason of mental defect” and pled “no contest” last Friday to three felony counts of being a Child Sex Offender Working with Children, five felony counts of Bomb Scares, and five counts of felony Bail Jumping.  Another 28 felony counts plus charges in Fond du Lac, Green Lake, and Walworth Counties were all dismissed but read into the record. Schreiber – who was convicted in 2005 of impregnating an underage girl – was a regular official for baseball, softball and basketball at school districts in Beaver Dam, Mayville and Waupun. In November of 2013, the first of 15 phony bomb threats was made at a restaurant in Waupun. Over the next three days similar threats were called in at a Waupun-area grocery store, gas station, school, hospital, bank and library; the threats also spread into Fox Lake and Beaver Dam. Investigators eventually traced the calls to Schreiber’s cell phone and he admitted his actions when he was brought in for questioning calling it retaliation after word of his sex offender status led to his losing ref jobs. The 33-year-old will be sentenced in August.
