05-11-2010, 05:49 AM #2Schmidt said he and his wife were babysitting their niece on Saturday, April 24. He said he was giving the girl a diaper change on their living room couch when she started to roll off. Schmidt said the girl must have been cut by a hangnail on one of his fingers.
Schmidt's wife drove the girl to the emergency room in Hastings and she was later taken to St. Paul Children's Hospital for surgery. The surgeon told the girl's father that the nature and extends of the tears to her private area were not consistent with Schmidt's explanation
Surgery from a hangnail? Really? This guy must think everyone is an idiot except him. I hope he never gets out.

Go figure. This creep has a history of child endangerment and domestic disturbances.
How utterly horrific. This poor, poor baby. Thank God the wife at least drove the baby to the hospital.
Seriously what is wrong with people?

I can't even say what I want to say right now because I am afraid of getting banned, but I will say I hope he suffers and then burns for the rest of eternity.Happy New Years

It looks like it's not the first time he's messed with a baby.
Among Schmidt's prior convictions for violence is one involving a baby boy in Goodhue County in 1994. Schmidt was convicted of child endangerment after an 8-month old he was caring for suffered extensive genital bruising and purple, swollen testicles. The boy had large bruises on his inner thighs, records show.
The domestic abuse convictions were for hurting his wife, who was present at least part of the time when the children were assaulted and would not cooperate with officers who investigated the 1994 case and the newest case, officials said.
The abused boy was her own son. For hurting the boy, Schmidt served 15 days out of a one-year jail sentence, and two years on probation. Child neglect charges and other charges were dropped. At that time, Schmidt was the mother's boyfriend, and they later married.

I am outraged that this POS was allowed to walk free after what he did to that first baby! Because of our screwed up so-called justice system another baby had to suffer. I seriously doubt that these were the only two babies and that 'mother' makes me freaking sick. I hope that she is charged also because the B*&*&% KNEW what a low life POS he was and stood by and let it happen. GRRRRRRHappy New Years
