By DYLAN LYSEN, Herald Staff Writer | 7/30/2014

A convicted felon picked up by police after a stalking report by a 16-year-old girl is out of jail and continuing to play the waiting game on his sentencing in another child sex crime case.

Corey J. Schlotzhauer, 27, Ottawa, posted bond after being arrested July 23 in the 1700 block of Elm Street on suspicion of breaking a protection from stalking order. The reported teen victim told police she was repeatedly followed by Schlotzhauer at various locations, including the Franklin County Fair, Capt. Adam Weingartner, Ottawa Police Department patrol division commander, said last week.

Schlotzhauer was convicted July 7 on a felony count of indecent liberties with a child between the ages of 14 and 16. As a condition of his bond in the court case, for which he was awaiting sentencing, Schlotzhauer was prohibited to contact the victims or witnesses of the child sex crime case, Weingartner said.

Schlotzhauer, a registered sex offender, posted a $5,000 bond Friday, according to the Franklin County Adult Detention Center. His next court appearance in the stalking case is Aug. 11.

His sentencing in the felony indecent liberties court case is scheduled for Aug. 25, according to Herald archives.
