WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) — A man arrested on Monday for child sex trafficking appeared in court for the first time Tuesday.
Thirty-four-year-old Paul Osterman appeared virtually before a Marathon County judge on Tuesday. The Rhinelander man is facing one felony charge of sex trafficking of a child. He was arrested Monday as a result of a two year investigation between the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office and the Internet Crimes against Children Task Force.
A judge ordered a $50,000 dollar cash bond for Osterman. If he posts bond, he is ordered to have no contact with children under 18 and to turn his passport in. He is scheduled to re-appear in court later this month on both September 28th and September 30th.
