No Bail Reduction For Man Charged In Chase

Antigo, WI, United States /

Bail won’t be lowered for a man police say was trying to have sex with a minor the day he ended up in a high speed chase that started in Antigo. 53 year old Gene Schneider planned to meet whom he thought was a 13 year old girl at the Holiday Inn. Police were waiting for him and Schneider tried to leave after pulling into the parking lot and that’s when the pursuit started. he ended up being caught in Marathon County. The “girl” he had communicated with was actually an undercover agent. In Langlade County Circuit Court this week, Schneider tried to have his bail lowered from $100,000 to $15,000 but the judge said no to that request.
