Matthew D. Krueger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on January 21, 2021, Jacob J. Salewski (age: 24) of Sobieski, Wisconsin, was sentenced to 60 months’ imprisonment for his distribution of child pornography.
In September of 2019, the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) received leads from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). Based on those leads, DCI investigators determined that an online user known as “susandoll69” and “ollie9615” distributed child pornography using a popular instant messaging service. Investigators tracked those usernames’ online activities and determined that the distribution was occurring at a residence in Sobieski, Wisconsin. Further investigation determined that Jacob J. Salewski was the individual known online as “susandoll69” and “ollie9615.”
Senior U.S. District Judge William C. Griesbach called Salewski’s actions serious and called for appropriate punishment. In addition to the 60 months of imprisonment, Salewski will spend seven years on supervised release and will be required to register as a sex offender.
