Former youth aviation camp leader reaches plea deal in child sexual assault case

APPLETON, Wis. - A former youth aviation camp leader has reached a plea deal after he was charged with allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy.

Robb Szymik, 46, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Outagamie County court to charges of sexual assault of a child and child enticement.

Four other charges were dropped.

Szymik is accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy in July of 2017 on the Oneida Reservation.

He met the teen on the app "Grindr" in May 2017, the criminal complaint said. The teen told officers Szymik offered him money for sex, according to court documents.

Szymik then allegedly contacted the teen again on July 5, 2017. The two met in Szymik's truck where he allegedly sexually assaulted him, the criminal complaint said.

For more than two decades, Szymik served as the vice president of a youth aviation camp. He was removed from any involvement with the camp after charges were filed.
