I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Kenosha County pastor charged with sex crimes against children

Police say man tried to entice 13-year-old girl

A Twin Lakes pastor is accused of sending sexually explicit text messages and images to whom he thought was a 13-year-old girl, according to court documents obtained by TODAY’S TMJ4.
Joshua Scheil, 29, a  pastor at Hope Lutheran Church, sent text messages to the girl stating that he was in town and wanted to have sex with her, and asked the girl to meet at a Winnebago County hotel, according to the complaint.
He was arrested at the meeting point and officials seized his phone, which showed the open conversation with the undercover official which included sending a sexually explicit image, police say.

Pastor charged in Oshkosh with child enticement

A Twin Lakes pastor faces charges of child enticement after authorities say he planned to meet who he thought was a 13-year-old girl for sex while in Oshkosh for a pastor's conference.
The Rev. Joshua C. Scheil, 28, of Trevor, was charged Monday in Winnebago County Circuit Court, where Judge Scott Woldt set a $10,000 cash bond. Scheil faces charges of attempted child enticement, using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime and causing a child 13 years old or younger to view or listen to sexual activity.
According to a news release from the Winnebago County Sheriff's Office, Scheil contacted an undercover crime analyst who was posing as a 13-year-old girl from the Oshkosh area. Scheil said he would be in the Oshkosh area April 11 to 13 and would be staying in a hotel.
Scheil sent sexually explicit messages several times, saying he wanted to have sexual relations with her when he came to town, according to the news release. He also sent an explicit image.
On Tuesday, Scheil sent another message, saying he was in town and asked to meet, according to the news release. When Scheil showed up for the meeting, authorities arrested him.
Scheil serves as a pastor at Hope Lutheran Church in Twin Lakes, according to the church's website. The South Wisconsin District of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod held its spring pastors conference April 11 to 13 at the Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel.
If convicted on all counts, Scheil could face a maximum sentence of 71 years in prison. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 2.
