May 06, 2014 | 03:01 PMA 26-year-old Walworth man was sentenced to five years in a state prison after he pleaded guilty April 30 to a felony charge of child sexploitation.
Parker G. Voltz, 318 Howard St., also was sentenced to five years of extended supervision. As a condition of his extended supervision, Voltz must pay $1,039 in restitution.
Other conditions of his probation include no contact with minors, no alcohol, no use of “interactive computers or smart phones” and no viewing of pornographic or sexually explicit images.
Voltz must register as a sex offender, undergo a sex offender assessment and receive sex offender treatment.
Two felony charges of possession of child pornography and a felony bail jumping charge were dismissed but read into the record.
The five year prison sentence was the minimum sentence allowed under state law on the child sexploitation charge.
Voltz was first arrested on April 16, 2013, when special agents with the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation executed a search warrant on his home. At the home, law enforcement found child pornography.
On Jan. 9, police arrested Voltz for possession of marijuana. Police allegedly also found pornography on Voltz’s cell phone.
However, the alleged pornography was not identified as child pornography. Voltz was court-ordered not to possess any pornography.
According to the criminal complaint on the child pornography charges:
On April 16, special agents with the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation executed a search warrant on Voltz’s home.
At the home an agent took a MacBook computer with images and videos of child pornography.
When Voltz was interviewed by the special agent, Voltz said he first found child pornography in the summer of 2012. Voltz admitted to the agent that he had both video and images of child pornography.
Voltz also told the special agent that he spends time online talking with people and getting advice on how to find child pornography.
He also allegedly admitted that he would play videos from his computer through a web cam for other people who would watch the videos. Voltz told police he did this every couple of days since August 2012.
According to the criminal complaint on the bail jumping charge:
Police found marijuana inside of the glove box of Voltz’s vehicle. On his phone, police saw a pornographic image on the home screen.
Voltz said more pornographic images were on his phone, and he knew possessing those images was a violation of his bond.
