Man gets jail, probation for chats with child

December 04, 2013 | 10:18 AM
A 19-year-old Lake Como man must register as a sex offender for the next 15 years after he asked a 12-year-old boy for naked pictures.

Matthew S. Rollie, N3326 Hickory Road, plead guilty Nov. 25 to a felony charge of exposing a child to harmful materials.

Misdemeanor charges of impersonating a peace officer and disorderly conduct were read into the record.

Rollie was sentenced to three years of probation, which includes nine months in jail with work-release privileges.

In a separate case, Rollie plead guilty to three counts of misdemeanor theft. He was sentenced to two more years of probation in that case and was ordered to complete 20 hours of community service.

According to the criminal complaint:

On June 3, police interviewed a boy about his relationship with Rollie. The child told police that he and Rollie regularly chat on Facebook and Rollie asks the child to send him pictures of his penis.

The boy said Rollie has sent him pictures of marijuana and offered to get the child the drug. The child told police that Rollie offered to videotape himself having sex with his girlfriend and that he would send the child the video.

Police reviewed the chat log between the victim and Rollie. During the chat, Rollie told the boy that he was a Delavan police officer and was off of work because he was hurt during an on-duty accident.

On June 23, the boy told police that he met Rollie on Facebook in January or February.

The two met at the McDonald's in Lake Geneva in April or May.

After hanging out at the McDonald's, the boy and Rollie walked to the bathroom at Library Park. At the park, Rollie unsuccessfully attempted to call someone to buy marijuana.

Rollie also asked the child to expose himself, but the boy refused.
