Bradley Schnickel, the former Minneapolis police officer who used the Internet to lure adolescent girls into sexual encounters, was sentenced Monday to 30 months in prison, minus 197 days for time already served. With good behavior, his remaining prison time could be reduced to less than 14 months.
Many in the packed Anoka County courtroom that included victims and their families were stunned when Judge James A. Cunningham sentenced Schnickel, 33, to less than one-fourth of the nearly 12-year sentence that prosecutors sought. Authorities had said there were 18 known victims, including two girls with whom Schnickel had sex, a 14-year-old and a 16-year-old.
“They’re frustrated that drug dealers, drunk drivers, nearly any kind of case with a single victim seems to get a greater sentence,” prosecutor Paul Young said after meeting with victims and their families.
