WAUKESHA - A man from Waukesha County was expected to learn his fate for keeping child pornography.

The same man also faces charges in Milwaukee County for the alleged sexual assault of a teenage boy he met on a cell phone dating app.

Daniel Schmidt was to face his punishment Monday afternoon.

Schmidt, 21, posed as a 16-year-old through a smartphone app called and exchanged sexual pictures with a teenage boy.

Schmidt also faces another sentencing date in Milwaukee for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy.

The victim is the same, but investigators say the crimes happened in two different counties.

In a plea deal, Schmidt pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing child pornography.

They eventually met in a park in Hales Corners.

Schmidt's hearing was scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m. Monday.
