Schopp then traveled to Reno, Nevada with the minor. Once in Reno, Schopp was arrested and detained. While detained, prosecutors say the defendant attempted to recruit individuals he knew to recover a computer and cell phone that he had been traveling with which contained the child pornographic images Schopp had produced and to destroy those items.
In sentencing Schopp, Judge Burgess noted that he had been arrested and sentenced to prison on two prior occasions for molesting at least nine children who had previously been in his care, and that a life term of imprisonment was the only way he could protect the community from the defendant.
“You go to jail for 26 years and you get out and here we are again. I don’t think there is anything I can do to deter you. Nothing,
” said Judge Burgess.
“The only way I can [protect the public] is to sentence you to life,” the judge said.
The FBI in Anchorage and Juneau, Alaska, and Reno, Nevada investigated the case with help from the State of Alaska Department of Corrections, Division of Probation and Parole,
and the Washoe County (Nevada) Sheriff’s Department. Assistant United States Attorney Kyle Reardon prosecuted the case.
