A 31-year-old Frederic man, Deej Snider, will be spending the next three years at Dodge Correctional Facility for his admission to possessing one single image of child pornography.

Snider was sentenced Friday, Nov. 29 after pleading guilty to one count of possession of child pornography in September. The sentencing brings closure to a case that was originally filed over two years ago, when 22 counts were leveled against Snider.

Evidence presented in the complaint alleged that Snider had used a Twitter and Dropbox account to trade multiple images consistent with child pornography in 2014 and 2015.

Snider pled guilty to count 13 in the case, a charge that was specific to one victim known as the ‘Tara’ series of images.

“In these cases we tend to see a lot of the same victims over and over,” he explained. Kemp says that ‘Tara’ was the only one for which he was able to garner a victim-impact statement for use at sentencing.

“I thought it important to put a face, as it were, to such a case. I think people tend to overlook the fact that these victims are still out in the world, having to deal with the effects,” Kemp added.

Despite defense attorney Bruce Anderson’s move to negate the minimum sentence guidelines in the case, Judge Jeffery Anderson did follow the mandatory guidelines for child pornography offenses.

Anderson sentenced Snider to three years of incarceration followed by an additional three years of extended supervision. This is Snider’s first criminal charge in Wisconsin. Once released, he will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
