Boise Man Convicted in Valley County of Two Counts of Lewd Conduct with a Minor under 16
August 26, 2021

Following an investigation by the Valley County Sheriff Office, an arrest warrant was issued for Boise resident Robert Calvin Schaeffer on September 17, 2020, alleging multiple counts of Lewd and Lascivious Contact with a minor child under 16. The acts were alleged to have been perpetrated against a family member at a second home in Cascade. Mr. Schaeffer was arrested on September 24, 2020 on the outstanding warrant by the Ada County Sheriff Office fugitive task force. Schaeffer posted bond and was released from custody shortly after his arrest.

On August 24, 2021, a jury trial was held in Valley County District court on two counts of Lewd and Lascivious Contact with a Minor Under 16. On August 25, 2021 Schaeffer was found guilty by a Valley County jury of both charged counts following the trial. After the jury’s verdict, Schaeffer pled guilty to a sentencing enhancement charge of being a persistent violator of the law in Idaho for having more than 2 felony convictions. At the conclusion of the two-day trial, Schaeffer’s bond was revoked by Fourth District Judge Jason Scott. Schaeffer will be held in the Valley County Jail without bond pending his sentencing hearing in Valley County District Court on November 8, 2021.
