Rhinelander man arrested in child sex trafficking investigation
By River News Staff


A 34-year-old Rhinelander man was arrested Monday in connection with an investigation involving alleged sex trafficking of a child, the Oneida County sheriff's office reports.

Paul Osterman was arrested at approximately 10:30 a.m. Monday, according to sheriff's captain Terri Hook.

In addition to the sheriff's office, the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation and the Rhinelander Police Department assisted in the arrest.

"The arrest is a result of a two-tear investigation conducted by the Oneida County Sheriff's Office and the Internet Crimes against Children Task Force," Hook noted in a press release. "These agencies received Cyber Tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding messages that were being intercepted on the internet from a person looking to have sexual contact with a child. During the investigation, Osterman attempted to obtain a child for the purpose of having sex with that child. The Tomahawk Police Department, the Rhinelander Police Department, the Wausau Police Department and the Marathon County Sheriff's Office also assisted with the investigation. Four search warrants were served in Oneida County on September 21, 2020 as part of this investigation. The investigation is ongoing at this time and other charges may be pending."

Osterman is being held at the Marathon County Jail and is expected to make his initial court appearance Tuesday.
